I was born in the wonderful high North of Germany. After somehow surviving school I started my studies of educational science with scope on adult and further education, where I built up a high commitment to youth at risc and democracy education. In 2010, I started to work as scientific associate at the Institute Technology and Education. My research fields are teaching and learning, school drop-outs, social competence development and VET. Since STRIDE, I got familiar with strategy development and see its great value for schools. In the frame of my professional, but also on a voluntary basis, I teach project management for schools and will adapt strategy development to this working field. I’m highly engaged in good and motivational teaching and hope to transfer this attitude to others 🙂
