I have a BA in Linguistics and German from Augsburg College and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Minnesota. I studied Linguistics and History at the Universität Stuttgart. My experience teaching includes teaching business English and leading and training and developing teachers for 15 years in Stuttgart, Germany, and teaching English at the University level both in Stuttgart and at the University of Minnesota. I speak German almost as well as English, and I have also learned Dutch. My main hobby is playing trombone in several jazz, blues, and rock bands in the Eau Claire area. Teaching students from all over the world is always an exciting adventure, and I love learning about their families and cultures as well as their languages.
