I am currently a high school German teacher in a Minneapolis suburb (Apple Valley). I teach German 1-4; German 4 is taught through the University of Minnesota College in the Schools program. I also have a GAPP exchange with a partner school in Gross-Gerau, Germany. Every other summer, I take around 15 AVHS students to Germany for three weeks, then their German partners attend our school for 3 weeks in October. This is my 7th year at AVHS and my 10th year teaching.
Right now, I am only teaching German part-time, as I am also working on a Department of Labor STEM grant awarded to my school. I work with students to help them match their skills and interests to potential jobs, then coordinate work and college experiences for students. This is my last year working on the grant; I will be back to teaching full-time next year.

As a German major, you’ll learn more than just the German language. At the end of your four years, you will have sharpened your critical thinking skills and have made fantastic connections with some of the Purple Valley’s best students and faculty.

In an ever more globalized world, studying German will make you an extremely attractive candidate to employers across many industries — regardless of whether or not you’ll use German on the job. Organizations will respect your global outlook and will recognize that you’re a flexible, nuanced thinker. With a German major from Williams, I was able to gain work experience at an international NGO, a Fortune-50 company, and a commercial bank. Take a German class – you won’t regret it!
