Denise began in 1978 teaching Grade 2, and over the years, served in EAL, Grade 5, and ultimately her specialty area, learning support. Her work has spanned developmental, pedagogical and cultural spectra. She has shared her expertise in areas ranging from motoric development to the inner workings of the Hamburg Schulbehörde.
Not only has she maintained a challenging teaching caseload, has translated documents, tracked down resources, administered assessments and met with parents. Every one of those nearly 6,630 days that Denise came to work, she did so with a smile - a positive word, a helpful suggestion, and a never-tiring optimism.
The International School of Hamburg wishes Denise the very best and thank her for her wonderful service to our school.
