“The beautiful thing about learning is no one can take it away from you.” – B.B. King

I’m a native German with a background in nursing and early childhood education and moved to the UAE in 2009 with my husband and two children.

I have been working for the past ten years at international schools in Dubai and supported the early years program of SISD in 2020/21 as a German and English supply teacher assistant.

My daughter has already graduated from the IB program, and my younger son is attending the IB1 now.

I’m extremely passionate working with children and helping them to succeed in a bilingual and an international environment, such as in Dubai, where children are often exposed to two or even more languages within their families. After having spent substantial time with smaller children, I’m know looking forward to playing a part in the primary year program as a teaching assistant.
