Our Team

Hello, my name is Josephin Dick. My family and I came to Saskatoon in 2000. Luckily, our two sons still speak German fluently. After two years I began to volunteer for the German Language School Saskatoon, teaching kids between 8 and 10 years of age. Since then I have been teaching German not only for the school at different levels, but for the university as well. For the last couple of years, I have taught the credit courses for grade 9 to grade 12 students, the DSD I language certificate, and the advanced, conversational adult class. I have a couple of hobbies, in summer mostly tending my garden, and being outdoors as much as I have time. In winter I enjoy reading if time between classes permits.

Hi! My name is Franziska Davies-Perret and I’ve been a teacher for the German school for over 7 years. My German knowledge comes from living in Germany for 12 years and having family still live there. I really enjoy teaching and in the classes that I teach, I put an emphasis on learning culture along with the language, as you can't have one without the other. In my spare time I run German cooking classes because sharing food is another love of mine, traveling home to a small little village in the Black Forest when I can and spending time with my husband and dogs.

My name is Theresa and I am connected with the German Language School Saskatoon since 2015. I am an immigrant from Germany and my heart beats for both countries - my new and my old 'Heimat' (home). I grew up in beautiful Bavaria, and learned how to celebrate Karneval while studying and working in Cologne (Koeln). Therefore, I am very passionate about sharing the language, culture and traditions of Germany with Canadians who are interested in studying German. I have a background in journalism as well as teaching, and currently I work with immigrants to Canada as a Settlement Advisor.

I hope I will meet you in class soon :-)
Bis bald,

My name is Kathleen Schroeder-Brass and I came to Canada in 2009. I grew up way out in the countryside near Leipzig/Germany. Here, I do live in Saskatoon with my family, but my dream is certainly to live out in the countryside again, as I am not really a city person. I did move to the United States after finishing school, returned to Germany to study in Cologne and went back to the States. After returning to Germany again, I did meet my husband and soon he brought up the idea of finding a country to move to together, as long as we are still young and adventures enough. Canada was one of the countries we did consider and here we are. I started driving school bus in 2012. Since September 2017 I also coordinate the school as principal and I have been teaching last years kids level 2/3 classroom. Administration for the school keeps me busy and I am very happy that I have such great teachers around me (“old” ones and new ones). Together as a team we like to share not only the German Language with you, but also bring culture and lots more to our students and families.

My name is Polina. I was born in Russia and grew up in Toronto. I have studied German for 8 years (in high school, at York University, and in Germany). I have studied in Berlin and lived in southern Germany. I currently study at the University of Saskatchewan in the College of Education. I am very happy to get to know all students and parents. Good luck to all in this upcoming school year!

Hi, I am Anna Schmidt and I am part of the German speaking community since I started at the Haensel & Gretel Pre-School. I did go through all the levels here at the school till I finished with the German Credit Classes. 

I am currently studying at the Business School in Saskatoon.

I started to work as an assistant in the level 2/3 classroom last year and I am looking forward to being an assistant in the level 1 classroom this year.
