"I came to CU-Boulder in August 2008 for the MA program in German Studies and have been working for the German Department as a German TA ever since. I am originally from Germany where I received a B.A. degree in American Studies and German Studies and a certificate in German as a Foreign Language in 2006. I have always enjoyed working with students and being in the classroom. I wanted to get more education after my B.A. degree and I didn't want to give up teaching completely. This program allows me to do both."
