I am a very talented and passionate teacher of German. I have taught German at the high school level for over 15 years. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelor's in German, and in 2011 I received a Master's degree in Instructional Technology. I was the Department Chair for many years. I love traveling and introducing students to new cultures and experiences. I believe in the importance of focusing on all areas of language acquisition. Learning languages opens doors you never thought imaginable.
