I was born and raised in France in a little town close to the German border.
After I graduated High School, I studied German for three years and spent my Summer breaks working as an Au Pair in Bonn. Once I completed my Bachelor's degree, I decided to move to Germany to work for a year as a language assistant in a bilingual Primary School and a bilingual High School in Saarland. I really enjoyed that experience and it brought me to start a new path in Germany. I moved to Karlsruhe where I completed a Master's degree in Primary Education. At the end of my studies, I did an internship of a year and a half in a bilingual Primary School where I taught French and Science to First and Second graders.
I then had the opportunity to move to San Diego. Here I worked for language schools and mostly taught children aged from 2 to 15 years old. I also worked for a year as a Preschool teacher where I was in charge of a class of 4 to 5 years old.
I am now happy to work at Rasselbande and I am glad to be able to use my German on a daily basis again! During my free time, I definitely enjoy the nice Californian weather either hiking, camping, or spending time at the beach. I also love to evolve in a multicultural environment, whether in my private or professional life and I hope to pass on my curiosity to the new generations.
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.
