About Gerald

I left my higher paying position in the USA to teach English in Germany in 2007. Most of my time as a teacher was teaching adults with better than 50 % of the time teaching at companies. In the 1990s I had a secondary jobs tutoring children; a more challenging job but more rewarding. After spending more than six months back in the USA, I wish to occupy myself in a position that better reflects the work I had in Germany. I almost remained in Germany when offered a position to teaching German to the inflow of refugees to the country, but decided to return to the US to be closer to my widowed mother.

Teaching has been the only job I truly loved. My favorite days were starting new classes and meeting many people from various cultures. Part of better understanding my role as a language teacher was taking advantage of the school and learning Italian. The method of my school, as well as most successful schools in Germany, is to communicate only in the language being taught. I've had many great experiences in teaching and it seems that almost half of my friends on Facebook are former students.

My favorite personal interest is long-distance cycling. Over the years I've lived in Germany I had cycled from my home in Baden-Baden and visited thirteen other countries. Part of the joy of seeing new places was the ability to communicate in other languages I have learned, that being French and a bit of Italian.

After a short stint in California I have decided to move back to Arizona, the only state in the US that feels like home. In my current job search I wish to include teaching as an option.
