I was born and raised in Tuscany where I studied and graduated. Since 1982 I llive in Carpi in Emilia -Romagna. I teach German as foreign language (and civilization) at the Language High School “Pico” of Mirandola in Italy.Like so many other colleagues I have collected experiences of teaching in many school courses in high schools in my region. I participated in various experiences of partnerships with German schools. In my previous school, The I. I: S “A: Meucci” in Carpi, have for some years been the contact person for the DSA. Now in the current school I am responsible for Erasmus + projects . I love history and archeology and music and dance of all kinds.I have a boat license and I like to go sailing. The sea has always been part of my life. I am fascinated by the North Sea even though I am the daughter of the sun. I have five children and I’m married to a “Koelner Bursche”. The experience of the earth quake that in 2012 hit my country of adoption and the cities in which I live and work, made me feel how deep is my connection with this country of strong, big-hearted and warm people.I shared moments of terror and despair, but also great enthusiasm and dedication. Since that moment we all work to the revival and appreciation of our territory. I learned to start each day with renewed enthusiasm and with the help and strength of our students! Since I found out about eTwinning my professional life changed , becouse I found new stimuli and met new friends, who helped me to become confident with new tools which can make everyone’s schoolroutine more involving and challenging. I met new, young and old friends sharing efforts, impulses, emotions and even disappointments.We “grew up” together . Therefore .. I’m happy and proud to be allowed to represent the eTwinnin community as eTwinning ambassador for my country: a world so big and exciting!
