I started taking German in 7th grade and just fell in love with the language and culture.  In 8th grade I decided I would be a German teacher and there was no turning back for me; even when my family moved and my high school did not have German!  The 2015-2016 school year marks my 9th year of teaching; 7 years have been at Portage High School where I teach German 1 through 4AP/Duel Credit.  I have been honored to receive the AATG Rising Star Award, and was chosen for TrainDaf, with that was an amazing Goethe Institut Seminar in Berlin, Vienna, and Zurich.  At my school the top 30 seniors are invited to an awards banquet and invite one teacher they consider outstanding; I have been chosen four different times!  What a huge compliment! 
When I am not teaching German, I enjoy going to the gym, knitting, scrapbooking, traveling, and also working at a local animal shelter. 

Would you or someone you know like to be in our monthly teacher feature?  Then send the following to: nmathews@hse.k12.in.us.  We will need a picture and a short Bio.  Some possible topics:  How did you get into teaching/German?, hobbies, educational triumphs, current projects, and interesting facts.
