Interviews with our teachers!

We have interviewed a few teachers at our school on various topics. The interviewed teachers include Mrs. Tschöpe, Mrs. Dinter, Mr. Siebert, Mr. Rudolph … Now  have a closer look at  the different questions and answers… 

1. Which subject in school used to be your worst subject or which subject was not fun at all?

Mrs. Tschöpe: Physics.

Mrs. Dinter: Social sciences. But it depends if you like the teacher or not.

Mr. Siebert: Math.

Mr. Rudolph: Biology and Chemistry.

2. Which subject used to be your best subject or the subject you most enjoyed?

Mr. Siebert: French and History.

Mrs. Dinter: Latin, Biology and English.

Mr. Rudolph: Music.

3. What do you think of social networks?

Mrs. Tschöpe: You have to handle it very carefully. Of course, it offers a lot of advantages, but you have to look very closely who you contact and what you say. You always have to be clear: Who would I invite into my living room!

Mr. Siebert: You have to be very careful with social networks!

Mrs. Dinter: Social networks today are up-to-date media, they are generally very important for the youth, but it is also often overestimated. Real communications could be lost through social networks.

Mr. Rudolph: Social networks are very dangerous because they are so attractive. I also see a huge  potential for people becoming depandent.

4. Do you use WhatsApp, if so, do you use it frequently?

Mrs. Tschöpe: I do not use WhatsApp.

Mr. Siebert: I do use WhatsApp very often, giphy.

Mrs. Dinter: I have WhatsApp but I do not use it that often.

Mr. Rudolph: I use WhatsApp often, yes. However, I also often use the “Sparkassen – App”, the “Spiegel – App”, a “Mail App”, a “Calendar App”. I use my phone very often and sometimes too much. 

                                                                                           Editorial staff: Mr. Rudolph, you can´t tell us that you use your phone very often and sometimes to much for the “Sparkassen – App” or the “Mail – App, so what are you really doing with your cellphone? Is that true? Are you joking?

5. Do you have a good relationship with your colleagues?

Mrs. Tschöpe: Yes, I like all of my colleagues very much! It’s a good mood all around!

Mr. Siebert: giphy

Mr. Rudolph: I get along with my colleagues.

6. Has it always been your dream job to become a teacher or have you ever had other ideas?

Mrs. Tschöpe: Sure, I sometimes had other ideas for a job, but at the end of my schooling, I choose not to follow these ideas. For example, I wanted to be a translater. But I could also imagine being a primary school teacher. 

Mr. Siebert: giphy

Mr. Rudolph: Originally, I also wanted to be a journalist, but then I decided for the job teacher.

7. How did you come to this school?

Mr. Siebert: I was lucky.

Mrs. Dinter: I came to this school because there were vacancies. I also teach Latin and that’s why I was gladly taken at our school. The combination of subjects played a role as well.
