About Me
Low German Mennonite Consultant
 
I am available as a Consultant at Division Office on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I facilitate the Locally Developed German Language and Low German Speaking Mennonite Cultural Studies at Chamberlain School in Grassy Lake. 
 
 As a Low German Mennonite Consultant I can meet the following three needs:
  • supporting high quality German language and culture programming in schools where a agerman program currently exists
  • staff development activities for Horizon staff to build knowledge and understanding of Low German Mennonite culture
  • translation services for schools. 
I grew up with my family in Mexico, where I taught grade one for three years upon finishing my own education.  I moved to Canada in 2012 and have worked in the Taber area for the last six years. In my free time I enjoy road trips with my husband, doing fun activities with my nieces and nephews, and relaxing with a good book or crochet hook and yarn in my hands.
