Lena Bacan

lena-smGrade 2 class teacher, Sachkunde/Ethik/German

I’m a certified German speech pathologist from Hamburg, Germany. I earned my degree in 2011 and have been working as a speech therapist in Hamburg with patients of all ages on their various speech and language issues until I moved to NYC in early 2016.

Right out of school in 2006 I spent a year in Westchester, New York as an AuPair for a family with three school aged children which is where I furthered my English skills.

My main role in the German School Brooklyn lays in supporting the students that are not fully bilingual yet to be able to follow the curriculum by translating and giving a few classes a week in German as a second language.

My focus lies in ensuring that the children balance learning with fun in the classroom and building confidence in their own ability.
