Lead Teacher & Assistant Director
I am originally from Hildesheim in Germany. In July of 1992 I graduated from a professional school called Fachschule für Sozialpädagogik with an Early Childhood education degree. I then worked in culturally sensitive educational capacities in Germany for over 14 years.
My first year of work experience was in my hometown in a public preschool, which was followed by my time at a Catholic preschool where I worked for over nine years. When I moved to Wiesbaden in 2003 I worked at a Lutheran preschool for close to five years.
In 2008, my husband Marcus and I moved to San Diego where my husband started his own IT business, and I began working for Die Rasselbande preschool soon after as the Cultural Educator. I am excited to be part of this preschool.
Jennifer Carqueville ~ Assistant Teacher
I am a native German speaker who grew up in Vienna, a lovely city in Austria. At the University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna, I taught Bachelor students in Rhetoric and Negotiation.
After finishing my Master’s degree in business and completing a basic medical education, I became a Medical Device Consultant, serving health care professionals and patients.
In 2019 my American husband, our dog, and I moved from Austria to San Diego. I started teaching German and Yoga, and got the opportunity to join the Rasselbande, where my love for children and educating unite.
