Conny Fiala, 8th Grade Teacher

I grew up in Southern Germany, a 5 minute drive from the French border. After finishing my degree in German and Biology at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg, I spent nine months traveling in different countries around the world practicing my English and Spanish, and had an absolutely wonderful experience.

I started teaching at the Saturday School directly after moving to the Bay area with my husband in 2014. I have really enjoyed being a part of the GISSV Saturday School and am grateful to have the opportunity to teach children my native language and observe their progress over time.

Education: 1. Staatsexamen (comparable with master degree) in German and Biology, Albert–Ludwigs–Universität Freiburg, Teaching credentials in German and Biology for Gymnasium (German high school grades 5-12)
