CDS Welcomes Foreign Exchange Teachers

Thursday, January 12, 2017

During the month of January 2017, CDS is proud to host two teachers from the University of Zurich Teacher Education Program. Rebekka Ackermann (on the left in the accompanying photo) will work with Colleen Flayler in the Middle School Art Department, while Andrea Schober (on the right) will join Syd Hoffman in our 5th and 6th Grade Math classes. Rebekka and Andrea are studying to become English teachers in Swiss elementary schools, and the exchange program gives them the opportunity to develop their teaching skills in an English-language environment. On our side, our students obtain the unique opportunity to interact and learn from teachers with a different perspective from their own. We'd like to extend a welcome to Rebekka and Andrea, and we look forward to working with them over the next few weeks!
