Head of Primary School, grades 1 to 4
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.
