Angelika attended the College of Education in Heidelberg in Germany, and became a state-certified elementary homeroom teacher as well as a Maths teacher for middle school. Living in Los Angeles for one year gave her the opportunity to study English at the University of Southern California.
After teaching several years at an elementary school in Germany, Angelika moved to Dalian, China. There she started to work with students from many different countries at Dalian Maple Leaf Foreign National School. She started working as a librarian at Hsinchu International School in Taiwan where she lived before she came to Shanghai.
Out of school you will still find Angelika reading many books. She also likes to travel, play board games with her family, meet with friends, and to explore Shanghai.
