I have supervised student-teacher at NIU, and recently completed a book on AP German Language and Culture with 5 colleagues. I am currently working on a STEM/Mint project with colleagues, as well as developing lesson plans relating to the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. I am a member of the Goethe Institut’s Trainernetz.
