ThIS employs compassionate, capable and committed staff and teachers from a wide range of countries. They are able to create a lively, varied, student-centered school culture supported by our excellent school facilities and good resources. All teachers are required to have professional teaching diplomas plus a university degree. Many of them have advanced degrees. They receive professional development opportunities and support while employed at ThIS to ensure they are able to offer the best learning experiences to students. Please find some brief information about some of our teachers portrayed below:
Felix: I am originally from the UK and am now in my 12th year of teaching in Lower School. I have taught at state schools and international schools in England, Germany and Hong Kong, occasionally taking on additional roles such as English language coordinator, school orchestra conductor or head chef at various school fetes (mainly hot dogs and burgers). In my free time I like learning languages and listening to classical music as well as exploring the classical music scene here in Weimar.
Jessiah: I am from Northern California, though I grew up all over the US, and teach English. Last year, I finished my Literature MA in Barcelona. I taught previously back home in California, in Busan and Daegu, South Korea, and most recently at the United World College in Changshu, China. I am a basketball coach, ultimate frisbee player, chess enthusiast, and overall pop culture nerd and I like to help students become stronger critical thinkers, more precise and eloquent writers, and more confident and powerful speakers.
