  • Position: Student Teacher
  • Location: Tübingen, Germany

That‘s me: Katharina Jakobi

Subjects: RE, Geography and English- one of our topics this year is Scotland :)

What I like to do after school: going the cinema, playing tennis, meeting friends, inline skating, working for my exchange organisation

My experience with RE abroad: I was an assistant teacher in Berkshire at a secondary school, where I taught German and observed RE lessons. After university I worked in a primary school in Glasgow where I observed many RE lessons ( celebrating Diwali was the best thing) and I worked at the German School in London for a year.

Why I like to teach RE: It is a subject with always relevenant and current topics and not just right and wrong answers. I enjoy discussions in class and the option to focus on the students interests as well as my own. In Germany you can also teach some subjects such as RE in English, which I am going to do in my year 9 form.

Why Ready: I am interested to get to know more about the subject RE abroad and how it is taught in different countries. It is a great combination of my two subjects RE and English.
