Gabi Weber

  • Position: Student Teacher
  • Location: Tübingen, Germany

My name is Gabi Weber. I’m 28 years old and at the moment I’m training to be a teacher of RE and English. Currently I’m living in Tübingen and teaching at a school nearby.

My third year of university I studied in Durham, so not too far away from Aberdeen. I had a good time there, getting to know the British culture - if there is a thing like that ;) – and getting a bigger picture of what theology is about. I think it’s a good idea to share thoughts and ideas not only with people from your home university. That’s why I’m interested in the project – I am eager to know more about your way of understanding religion and RE in particular. And I’m interested to see if Scottish pupils in RE class are in any way different from Germans ;) I find it quite challenging to keep people excited about topics that are connected to religion. Maybe you have some ideas…

I hope that we can learn from each other and get new ideas for our own teaching.
