A great Parents Coffee Morning took place yesterday morning at our school. Thank you, dear parents, for being there, visiting the school and taking the opportunity to exchange views. Thank you also for all the fantastic cake donations and the organization by the parents’ representatives Mrs Tania Fecht and Mrs Julia Whyte.

Only those who set out on a journey will discover new land.
After passing my final secondary-school examinations in 1986, I left my beautiful federal state of Saarland for the neighbouring state of Rhineland-Palatinate to study Elementary and Secondary School Education in Landau. I passed my first state examination in 1990 and spent my teacher training period back in Saarland finishing it with the second state examination in 1992.
In summer 1992 I received a job offer from Hamburg and left my home again to work there as a teacher. After a one-year training for a qualification as a head of department (2003-2004) and a two-year further education programme in the field of „Trainee Programme Leadership“ at the Institut für handlungsorientierte Weiterbildung in Hamburg (2008-2010), I applied for a position as deputy headmaster and held this position until 2016.
In 2012 I ventured to go back to studying at university and earned the Master of Arts /Magister Artium degree from CAU in Kiel in the field of “school management and quality development” in January 2015. In autumn 2015 I took up a teacher training for German as a Second Language which I finished successfully in January 2016. Since August 2016 I have been working at the German International School Doha.
