Willkommen! Realizing a need to deepen international connections and to better understand one's own language, I have been instructing students in German since the 1990-91 academic year. In addition to being a member of the World Language Department, I also serve as advisor of Exeter's German Club, as well as co-coordinator of the German-American Partnership Program (GAPP), an exchange program with the Karl-Ritter-von-Frisch academic high school in Moosburg, Germany.
In addition to a Master's in German literature, I also hold a teaching certificate in FCS (Family and Consumer Science). As a result, I am afforded the opportunity to provide students with many of the skills necessary for everyday life as they become independent, responsible adults. This academic year I am privileged to teach Life 101. In this course we cover a variety of topics that relate to successful independent living, including personal finance, food preparation, purchasing vs leasing a car, the cost of credit, and insurance matters.
