My Alma Matter: California Lutheran University and Sul Ross State University

Before I became a teacher: My family owned an organic vegetable farm.

Why I became a German teacher: I followed both my father's and his father's footsteps. My dad taught German and History, while my grandpa taught Elementary School. I always knew that's what I wanted to do. While teaching science classes at Sul Ross State University I was hooked and became certified to teach.  After a couple of years of teaching Biology and Anatomy, I found my true calling in German. 

Languages: Swiss German, High German, French, English

Favorites: When i'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, pets and friends. I occasionally play violin, piano and guitar, read, swim in the Comal River or take a road trip to anywhere.
