Heidrun Hoffmann, Toddler Play Group Teacher

I am from Hildesheim, Germany, and have lived in Berlin, Vienna, and toured in many countries as a dancer and musician, learning to appreciate languages and various cultures. I have lived in California since the early 90's and married an English teacher.

We are raising our son bilingually, and I truly enjoy this journey. He speaks fluently and has successfully accomplished the DSD 1 and the German AP exam so far.

When I was asked to work at the GISSV-Saturday School, I thought it was about a few Saturdays...this was 2013...I am still here. The environment and the colleagues are fun and add a refreshing and enjoyable component to my life. Working with toddlers and their parents is simply delightful, and I enjoy laying the ground work for a little person entering a pleasurable school experience.
