In 2009 I graduated as a state certified educator – Erzieher – in Trier, Germany. I have more than 12 years experience of working with children ages 3 – 12 years. After a few years of working in Germany I decided to work in Luxemburg, where I mostly worked with special needs children. In 2014 I moved to New York and started to work in German schools with children between 2 and 5 years.

I believe that our job as a teacher provides us with the great opportunity to learn from those who embrace life and I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by children with their imaginative way of seeing the world. I focus on supporting children in developing an independent personality as well as stimulating their physical, social emotional and cognitive development. I believe that the best way of raising children is being warm, having love for every individual and supporting them in their natural creativity and interests.
