Fleetwood Area High School German teacher, Herr Rudy, resigned shortly before the 2012-2013 school year began. His replacement, Frau Moll, brings with her a lot of experience in teaching the language as well as the culture.

Frau Moll has an B.A. in German from Ursinus University and an M.S. from Wilkes University. She taught at North Penn for ten years before coming to Fleetwood.

Ever since she was in high school, she loved being around and teaching kids, so becoming a teacher was a no-brainer.

She likes teaching high school students because they have longer attention spans and do not complain as much as younger students, but also enjoys doing crafts and hands-on activities with middle schoolers.

She was born and raised in Central P.A., and German came easy to her from an early age. When she was sixteen, she made her first trip to Germany with The Girl Scouts. Since then, she estimates she has been to Germany nine or ten times to either study or visit friends. Some things she likes about Germany include the easier transportation, a better train system, and the overall cultural experience.

It should not come as a surprise that language is an extremely important topic to study in Frau Moll’s eyes. Not only does it expose students to a different culture, but Moll estimates many students here at Fleetwood have German ancestry, and studying the language can help them connect with their ancestors.

Additionally, she says learning another language can help students grasp their own languages a little better, opening up a whole new world of communication.

Currently, Frau Moll is married with an eight-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter. Outside of school, she loves to travel, read, sing, and even play the mandolin. She already likes Fleetwood for the quieter, rural surroundings and the polite students.
