About die Lehrerin
This started off as being a blog about educational technology, inquiry learning, and education in general, but as the blog grew and changed, what inspires me to write is not necessarily something that happened in my classroom.
In a way this blog is a place for me to post what inspires me. It is a place to keep my reflections on lessons learned in the classroom or observations I’ve made about living outside my home country. It is my collection of things that have gone through my brain, whether an insight into teaching, or thoughts on a German or American cultural phenomenon.
I have a Masters in Educational Technology and have been teaching English Literature and the Humanities for over 18 years both in public and private schools in the US and in Germany. Currently I am teaching at an International School in Germany and for the Global Online Academy. My students come from over 30 countries and range in ages from 6th to 11th grades.
Also check out a project that I am involved in at Visit Holocaust Memorials in Europe. Our aim is to work with teachers to use the local memorials in their towns to teach the Holocaust and other issues dealing with Human Rights.
