Dear Parents and Students,


I am Frau Boss and I am very excited for school year 2020/21 to begin. 

I have been in education for over 15 years. I taught 4th grade German DLI at Summit Academy before I moved to 5th grade DLI three years ago, and I truly enjoy 5th grade!!!

I am very passionate about education and I am extremely proud of our German DLI program and our students. The German language progress our students make yearly is impressive.


In my class students only speak, read and write in German. I teach German Language Arts, Science (Utah common core science for 5th grade), will be taught only in German.  Students will also have math reinforcement in German this school year, too. 


When learning a foreign language, it is important to learn about different cultures and customs, too. Therefore, students will use and have access to approved and appropriate German school websites, as well as other age appropriate and educational digital media in class. Students will read several books this school year in class, too.  ("The little prince" and "Anne Frank", and few more).

My moto is: "we all can always learn and laugh a bit more..."  


When I am not teaching, grading or studying, I enjoy traveling, writing, reading, skiing, skating, cooking and spending quality time with my husband, our three kids. 


I am very excited to meet all of you and I am looking forward to spending an amazing school year learning with and from my students.
