Aiken HS German Teacher
I have been a high school teacher since 1979 and have been at Aiken HS since 1987.
I have been World Languages Department Chair for over twenty years.
- German Club
- Interact Club
- State University of New York (Farmingdale)
- University of South Carolina (Columbia)
- Universitaet Bamberg (Germany)
It has been very gratifying to see many, many former students use their German to become German professors and teachers in the USA and abroad, international businessmen and businesswomen (BMW, Volkswagen USA, etc.), government officials (US State Department), etc. That has been truly wonderful.
