Guten Tag, ich heiße Frau Siess! Willkommen im Deutschunterricht!
Hi, my name is Frau (Ms.) Siess! Welcome to German class!
Hometown: Union, MO
High School: St. Francis Borgia, Washington, MO
I am the youngest of 4 with two brothers & one sister.
I currently live in Chesterfield, MO & my parents, siblings & 3 nieces all live in the St. Louis area.
I graduated from SLU in 2010 with a B.S. in Secondary Ed. & a Major in German Studies.
I spent the first 8 years of my teaching career at Parkway Southwest & West Middle Schools.
I began learning German as a Freshman in high school.
Much like many of my German students,
I chose to begin learning German because much of my family heritage is German.
I have been to the German-speaking world 6 times (so far!).
My first experience was an exchange trip to Marbach am Neckar, Germany in 2005.
I studied abroad in Heidelberg, Germany for a semester in college.
I have taken 3 groups of students on exchange trips to Germany,
twice to Haren in nothern Germany and once to Stuttgart!
I got the chance to reunite with my high school exchange partner in the summer of 2016 while on an exchange trip with students of my own!
I am so excited to share my love of German and the German-speaking world with my students!
