Justyna Feldman - Lead Teacher
I was born in Poland and grew up in Stuttgart, Germany. I started babysitting when I was 15 and through that I discovered my passion for working with young children. After completing my degree in Early Childhood Education in Tübingen, I decided to travel and improve my English. I knew I also wanted to work with children so I spent the next 2 years as an Au Pair on the east coast. I was living with families in Philadelphia and Baltimore and cared for their children. After meeting my husband, I continued working with children while getting my Bachelor‘s degree in Psychology. For the past 3 years I worked in Philadelphia with preschool age children on the autism spectrum and I truly loved it.
This summer my husband and I moved to San Diego for a change of pace and the beautiful warm weather! In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and exploring different cultures and trying new foods. I am very excited to be part of die Rasselbande!
Lisa Walter ~ Assistant Teacher
I was born in Hamburg, Germany and grew up in the picture perfect town called “Altes Land”. I lived there until middle school, when my parents decided to take the job opportunity and move the family across the big pond to San Diego. I studied and graduated with a BS in International Business Administration and Marketing from Alliant International University. As I believe that we never stop the need to learn, I continue to take classes and seek to gain more knowledge on topics and courses that tickle my fancy.
Though I am not exactly new to the Rasselbande, I’ve held onto my fun and fond memories of being the Affengruppe Teacher dearly, which brought me back to this wonderful school and getting back into what I sincerely call my passion. I am very excited to be back and seeing how much the school has grown; seeing a few old faces and many new, new classroom set ups and concepts, I look forward to being back on the Rasselbande Team! As I am now a Mama myself to an active and spunky 17-month-old boy, being able to do what I love and continue to grow and learn as a teacher and Mom while being part of this community is absolutely wonderful.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, being with my senior horse Harry Potter, baking, hanging out with my Mama+ Babe crew and taking in all that this city has to offer.
