Unsere Fremdsprachenassistentin                            Our Teaching Assistant

My name is Michelle Hawkins and I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I graduated from Mount Mary University with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies.

In addition to my native English, I speak German, Spanish, and am learning Arabic.

I have previous experience with the German school system; I participated in an exchange program in high school where I attended a Gymnasium near Paderborn.

What is more, I studied for a semester at Frederick-Williams University in  Bonn in 2012.

My hobbies include hiking, rock climbing, birding, and playing Ultimate frisbee.

I also love to travel and have visited much of Europe, many US states, as well as a few countries in the Middle East.

Having completed internships with organizations focused on human rights and economic development in Valencia, Spain and Washington DC, I hope to pursue employment or graduate studies, after I leave Regensburg, in the areas of International Affairs, Development, or Middle Eastern Studies.

I am excited to be with you this year and to be living in Bavaria, as it is a region in Germany I have not previously been to.

 I am looking forward to teaching and getting to know the school community.
