As a result of her mother’s international career Britta has been lucky enough to live and learn in six different countries. She grew up bilingual, speaking both English and French until her mid-teens. She hopes to reignite her French skills where she left off! Her learning communities, peers, and teachers were a constant source of comfort and joy throughout her many moves around the world. These factors sparked her love for school and education. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA) in 2018 with a degree in Geography and Gender Studies. In early August 2021 she graduated with her Master’s Degree in Secondary Education in Social Studies with a certification in teaching English as an Additional Language from University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is thrilled to join the San Diego French-American School learning community and hopes to inspire her students to love Social Studies as much as she does. Britta is new to San Diego and cannot wait to begin exploring the area with her dog, Misty. In her free time she loves to hike, cook, and swim.
