Kallin Recognized for Furthering Teaching of German

Primary tabs

Britta Kallin, associate professor of German in the School of Modern Languages, has been awarded the 2021 Goethe‐Institut/AATG Certificate of Merit. She is one of only five educators nationally to be recognized this year.

Germany’s cultural institute, the Goethe-Institut, and the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) jointly administer the award for achievements in furthering the teaching of German.

“I love working with our highly motivated students, who want to learn more about the world, want to go abroad, learn about other cultures, and speak another language,” said Kallin. “Being selected for this award was only possible because my colleagues and I work as a wonderful team, and because the leadership in the School of Modern Languages provides tremendous support to the faculty and the students in the German program.”

Fellow recipients of the 2021 award include Heidi Lechner, teacher of German at Libertyville High School in Libertyville, Illinois; Pamela Scholz, teacher and language school director at the German American School of Palo Alto, California; Kathryn Sederberg, assistant professor of German at Kalamazoo College in Michigan; and Mark Wagner, teacher of German at Nicolet High School in Glendale, Wisconsin.
