I studied at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität in Heidelberg from 1999 until 2005 and obtained a M.A. degree in German in English. After living and acquiring my first experiences as a teacher in San Sebastián, Spain, I returned to Heidelberg and passed my 1st state examination in 2007. Then I entered my teacher’s training at a Middle and High School in Ulm, Germany, and worked there as a German and English teacher until 2015. After moving to Canada and taking care of our now 2-year-old son and working as a private tutor, I am now looking forward to being back at university and being able to focus again on my interest and passion for German literature and cinema.
