Professors, what made you study and eventually teach German?
: "I was exposed to German culture and literature from early on, growing up in Germany until I was 15. One of my favorite things to do was to stay in bed and read all day long. Then I discovered my love for teaching when I engaged in volunteer work with kids in urban communities."
Bohn: "Growing up as an American in Austria, I experienced the power and pleasure of living in a culture, and language, not of one’s own. At graduate school, I fell in love with the language teaching part of my program. I feel great excitement when students’ thinking expands beyond the limitations of translation."
