Jennifer Carqueville ~ Lead Teacher

I am a native German speaker who grew up in Vienna, a lovely city in Austria. At a university in 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. Driven by my passion, I graduated an Early Childhood Education program at a California university.

Frieda Gould ~ Teacher

I grew up in a small town in the middle of Germany and before I moved to California I lived in Cologne, Germany. I studied Interior Architecture and I am an artist. In Germany I worked in an Architecture Gallery and every other month we hosted a workshop for children. During these workshops I would help the children draw and build models. The kids and the parents were very satisfied with my work. After this experience I realized how much I love working with children.


In the end of 2015 I moved to San Diego to marry my husband. He and I are working together at our own business.  We own a small store for art supplies, a contemporary art gallery and we offer several art and design services. When I came to San Diego, I was looking for another job besides our business where I could use my native language. I started to help out as a substitute at Die Rasselbande in 2016 and also started working as a babysitter and German tutor for several kids. I took Early Childhood Development classes to be able to work full time as a preschool teacher. I am now a mother of a two year old son who will attend die Rasselbande as well and I am looking forward to being back full time at Die Rasselbande.
