Karin Denson, 5th Grade Teacher

I was born in Poland and moved to Germany at the age of 6. When I entered the first grade, I didn't speak any German at all. Maybe it was because of my great appreciation for my first teachers, who supported and nourished my joy of learning and my self-confidence in this new situation, that I decided to become a teacher myself.

In the Saturday School, I'd love to pass on my enthusiasm for languages and intercultural communications to every student. In the last two years, I taught art workshops at Duke University's International House and I now work as Inclusion Teacher at the GISSV SF campus.
