I recently moved to Berlin where I will work at the Nelson Mandela Schule (http://www.sisberlin.de/) as a teacher in training for five months. So far I have explored the different areas of Berlin including Wilmersdorf, Tiergarten, Potsdamer Platz, and Neukoln. Berlin is a vibrant and bustling city full of art, culture, and energy. It has a dynamic art scene and is home to some of the best museums in the world. I am already getting inspired and know I have much to learn from the city.

I begin my teachers training on Monday, August 31. I have meet my teacher-mentor, Florentine Baumann and cannot wait for this opportunity to learn more about art education and how it is conducted in Germany. We are both very excited to work with each other. I know this experience will improve my own ways of thinking and creating art.

Bis bald! (See you soon!)
