I can't underscore just how different it really is in Germany. I see six-year kids taking the U-Bahn to school all alone. I was really anxious the first few times I took my pupils to city parks to play.

Reichersbeurer Faschingszug 2015
Wer denkt, den Tölzern sei Feiern fremd, der irrt. 

Am 15. Februar 2015 findet der größte Faschingszug im Oberland, von Reichersbeuern nach Bad Tölz statt. Der MUAFAZ - Mutter aller Faschingszüge

Am Faschingssonntag tummeln sich in Bad Tölz Tausende Schaulustige aus Nah und Fern. Hauptattraktion ist der Faschingszug aus dem nahe gelegenen Reichersbeuern. Bunt kostümiert empfangen die Tölzer ihre Nachbarn sowie zahlreiche Gäste und feiern ein schönes, lustiges Straßenfaschingfest.

"Researchers have come to one very simple conclusion: tardy people simply underestimate how long a task or journey is going to take – always!"
There is research which shows people estimate time differently. This is why some people are always late. Here are 10 tips to manage tardiness better.

I did this science project with my pupils on Friday. It worked perfectly! Some add-ons ... we converted to metric (it's a school in Germany) and we also went shopping together to practice those life skills. It's really important not to forget towels and warm gloves/mittens. The baggies get REALLY cold. 
Make ice cream in a baggie to get a tasty treat while learning science.

Story
Tagline
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain / You have to risk going too far to discover just how far you can really go. -- T.S. Eliot
Introduction

I'm a Pädagogin (teacher) at a Montessori school in Bavaria, Germany.  Check out my About.me page to see what makes me tick. 

Bragging rights
Decided to sell just about everything I owned, learned a new language (German) and moved to Germany in December 2010. I now teach at a Montessori school in Munich (yes, in German).
