After graduating with a Diploma in Educational Sciences in 2008 at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, I worked in the field of family therapy, youth counselling and social assisted living in Germany. I have a Diploma in Pedagogy (Diplom Pädagogin) and while working, I completed an apprenticeship and got certified in systematic/family therapy.
My experiences of living and working abroad started after graduating from high school when I was working as an au-pair for three children of the ages of 1, 4 and 6 in Vermont, USA. That great experience strengthened my wish to work with children and families as well as my desire to work abroad and experiencing different cultures and mentalities. During my studies at university I spent half a year in Washington, USA as an intern organizing a social camp for children infected by HIV and their families and training their counsellors, applying and developing on my knowledge gained of social sciences at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg in Germany.
Together with my husband, we moved to China in 2015 and I was working at another international school for 4.5 years, teaching children aged 16 months in Nursery to almost 6 years in Pre-K and Pre-school.
Now I am very thankful and greatly appreciate the chance to work at BSB, Shunyi as a German Teacher. I am looking forward to form positive relationships with the children and their parents and the other teachers and BSB team and look forward to inspiring the children to learn, explore and develop.
Personally I love to travel and explore new cultures, foods and different ways of living. I enjoy running, biking, hiking, reading and being with friends.
