Amber Auer From Erie, Pennsylvania, USA I was born in Erie, Pennsylvania, but have done quite a lot of moving around, both in the United States and in Germany. I decided to move to Germany after graduating high school and have been here ever since! I first began working with children in the United States, where I worked in a Day Care center for four years. After spending one year as an Au Pair and English teacher in Lüneburg, I decided to move back to Heidelberg and begin learning German. I have been working at the DAI Language School since early 2015 and have been one of the go-to “FerienCamp” (holiday camp) teachers, alongside with teaching several classes to children aged three to sixteen, and even for the Abitur. I want to continue improving my teaching skills by regularly taking part in seminars and courses, like the TEFL Certification, which guided me in teaching new and interesting ways of learning English as a Second Language. It’s very important for me that I incorporate both learning and excitement into my lesson plans for the children, while also helping them grow to be kind and thoughtful. In my very little free time, I enjoys reading books by my favorite authors Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and David Sedaris, traveling to or with my three sisters, who also live in Europe, and trying out new recipes for those with a sweet tooth and savory one.
