MHS GERMAN - COURSE GUIDELINES

MHS STUDENT PARENT FORM (CONFIRMATION OF REVIEW OF COURSE GUIDELINES)

About me:

Like most of my students, I started learning German in high school. I then earned my B.A. in German and European Studies from Northwestern University (Go 'Cats!) and my M.A. in German from the University of Houston (Go Coogs!), with time abroad as an exchange student at the Universities of Tübingen and Leipzig. I love 20th century cultural history and literary translation!

Prior to teaching, I worked at the German American Chamber of Commerce, promoting bilateral trade and cultural exchange between the US and Germany, for the US Department of Veteran Affairs' Germany division, and for a Houston-based translation and interpretation company.

I came to teaching after several years of private teaching and tutoring. It was always the work that brought the most satisfaction, so I pursued my alternative certification in 2016.

In 2019 I was honored to receive the German Embassy Teacher of Excellence Award in Washington, DC. 

When I am not in the classroom, I am riding my bike, singing with and serving on the board of directors of the Houston Sängerbund, reading, watching Jeopardy!, or doing yoga.
