What is the worst school in Hawaii

Interview with Mr. Sterzelmaier

Hello Mr. Sterzelmaier. What would you improve in our school?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: As far as the space is concerned, I would like a common room for students. The students should also have more time to exercise themselves physically in school. And teachers should have more time to get to know students outside of class. They should also be able to invest more time in individual students.

Which event in your school days do you remember best?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: The trip to England.

You have been a father for six months. What has changed in your life?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: I sleep less, have less free time and am happier.

Which TV show would you like to be a part of?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: At Team Ninja Warrior with Mrs. Aichele against Mr. Schipfer and Mrs. Bleil.

What is the hardest part of your job for you?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: To be entered in the diary on time. And with some students it is easier for me to talk about their problems than with others.

If you had to be an animal, which one would you be?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: A panda bear. They have something cozy about them. Nothing is hectic. They sit around and chew bamboo.

You are on a lonely island and are allowed to take three people with you. Which would it be?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: My wife, my son and Ms. Jablonsky.

The money is tight. Which mini job would you start?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: I would be waiters.

What do you think is the best invention ever made?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: Soap.

As a student, have you ever received an entry?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: There were no entries, but I had to detention several times because I disrupted the class.

Do you have a role model?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: Robert F. Kennedy. John F. Kennedy's little brother.

You are an only child. Would you rather have had siblings?

Mr. Sterzelmaier: Yes, I would have preferred siblings.

You have the opportunity to learn another instrument. Which one would it be?

Interview Mr. Bollinger

Hello Mr. Bollinger. What would you be called if you became a girl?

Mr. Bollinger: I think my parents would have called me Sandra.

How old were you when you knew you wanted to become a teacher?

Mr. Bollinger: I was 23.

What are you doing in your spare time?

Mr. Bollinger: I make a lot of music, I like building, I look after a garden and I go jogging. Every now and then I play squash and badminton. A very important part is of course the teacher sport, which takes place on Monday lunchtimes.

Do you play an instrument?

Mr. Bollinger: Yes, I play the electric bass and piano.

Do you play in a band?

Mr. Bollinger: No, unfortunately I don't have the time, but I lead a small choir together with my wife.

Which subject did you like the least during your school days?

Mr. Bollinger: French.

Do you have a part-time job?

Mr. Bollinger: I also teach three piano students on the side. They are children of friends.

If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?

Mr. Bollinger: Sometimes I would like the day to have 26 hours, then I would wish that I would always stay fit and healthy and then I would wish for 3 new wishes and then I would think about what I would like to see next would.

What was the best moment in your life?

Mr. Bollinger: When I proposed to my wife and she said yes. That was the best moment so far.

What was your funnest experience at our school?

Mr. Bollinger: The funniest experience was when I held my very first lesson at the aft. I imposed hard rules on them and just kicked the students out at random, so that in front of me there were students who were trembling. That's funny because it was an hour on absolutism and this was actually considered an introduction, but the class didn't get it. So on the one hand it was funny and on the other hand it was terrifying. But now in retrospect, I think it's funny.

What's the most embarrassing situation you've ever faced?

Mr. Bollinger: As a child I built a small boat and let it swim in the stream. It was winter and I slipped and fell into the creek. I actually wanted to go home, but I hardly came home because the clothes were really frozen. So I'm stiff like I walked home through town. I was really embarrassed at the time. Now I think it's funny.

What is the most embarrassing situation that happened to you in class?

Her Bollinger: I went to a class last year and taught music. The class immediately made music, but five minutes later my colleague was inside and said he had the class. My class was happy that I didn't come.

What would you do if you knew you only had one month to live?

Mr Bollinger: I would make sure that my family is secure, prepared as well as possible and try to make the best possible use of the time I have with people and at the same time ensure that they are as good as possible for them Are prepared for the situation and also prepare myself for it. But I would only do that if it was really certain that there was only one month left. If there is a chance I would do anything to make the time longer.

If you could take three things with you to a desert island, which ones would it be?

Mr. Bollinger: A pad, set square and a math book. No, that was fun. I would take the three wishes, my wife and a hammock with me.

Have you ever skipped school?

Mr. Bollinger: I never skipped school.

What are the worst student comments you have ever heard?

Mr. Bollinger: I find it strange when a student says amicably to the other, hey you shit ... because I think that there are things that cannot be said amicably to one another.

Thank you for the interview, Mr. Bollinger!

Interview Mr. Weber

Hello Mr. Weber. What subjects do you teach?

Mr Weber: I teach BNT, biology, math and EEC, and from next year I also teach WBS (business, vocational and study orientation).

Do you have a subject you most like to teach?

Mr. Weber: I prefer to teach EWG because I mainly studied economics during my studies.

Why did you become a teacher?

Mr. Weber: Back then I was very often the supervisor in the tent camp. Even as a child I was often there in the tent camp and then at some point I became a supervisor. That's when I realized that I enjoy working with children. Back then and then also at the school where I once did an internship. Then it quickly became clear to me that I also wanted to become a teacher one day.

How old were you there?

Mr. Weber: I was in about tenth or eleventh grade.

Which subject do you think is the most important and which is the least important?

Mr. Weber: In my opinion, religion is a subject that doesn't have to be taught in school, but at home, although I think the content of religion is important. But I wouldn't make it compulsory as a subject, I actually find ethics much more important. Ethics as a subject in which you talk to everyone about social problems. Accordingly, I would also see this as an important subject, which would be very important for our society today, but which unfortunately does not exist as a subject.

Is there anything you would like to change or improve about our school?

Mr. Weber: I think it's generally important to teach students how to learn properly. A subject like “learning to learn” or something like that. I would introduce that in the lower grades. There are already similar ideas. And I think it's important that students exercise more. Not just physically, but also mentally. That you do exercise and coordination games together and let off steam for ten minutes a day in an hour. Then I think the lessons would be more effective in many hours.

You are on a lonely island and are only allowed to take three people with you. Which would it be?

Mr Weber: My girlfriend, my niece, with whom I always have a lot of fun and who can entertain me, and a writer who can always write books for me so that I don't get bored. No matter which one, the main thing is that he writes well.

Which event in your school days do you remember most?

Mr. Weber: What I always like to think back to are the student exchanges. I was in France and Poland for an exchange. Those were very impressive experiences. Especially in France, where I was alone on a huge farm and everyone looked after me very carefully.

You can change a situation in the world. Which would it be?

Mr. Weber: I would generally abolish all wars. To be more precise, end the whole weapon production so that there can be no more wars, so to speak, and that hopefully the world will then be more peaceful than it is now.

Do you have a special characteristic?

Mr. Weber: I am a talented organizer. On the one hand, this is very important as a teacher and, on the other hand, I also enjoy going on excursions with my friends or with football. My strength is that I can coordinate a lot of things.

What was the most uncomfortable situation you have experienced as a teacher?

Mr Weber: In general, of course, it is very uncomfortable when classes are very restless or loud. It was also unpleasant in the traineeship when you came into classes and - I'm not the greatest teacher now - some students were taller than you were. You had to assert yourself, even if you were still young and inexperienced. At the beginning, when you got into the job, it was a very difficult task.

What was the most thoughtless comment you made in class?

Mr. Weber: Generally speaking, there are rash comments every day. If you say that the students don't have to take notes, then it usually gets very loud and nobody cares anymore what you're doing up there. Or in biology, when you talk about animals like reptiles or mammals that have a tail, it's always funny. And then you notice how some of them blush and giggle.

Describe yourself in four words.

Mr. Weber: Quiet, level-headed, funny and ambitious.

All means are at your disposal. What would you invent?

Mr. Weber: A teleporter that you can use to teleport anywhere. Either to get to work - then I would no longer have to drive here from Stuttgart every morning, which is very annoying. Plus, it's wasted time when you're in the car and could do so many important things - or, of course, to see the whole world, because I really enjoy traveling. Then I would be in Hawaii or Cambodia or anywhere else in the blink of an eye. That would be a very useful invention that I would love to invent if I could.

What is your favorite food?

Mr Weber: I really like schnitzel with french fries, but I'm also a fan of Asian cuisine.

You draw a six in the lottery. What would you do with the money?

Mr. Weber: I would buy a nice house somewhere in the country and move there. Of course I would continue to work because I enjoy my work, but I would take life a little easier.

What is the best and what is the worst about the teaching profession?

Mr. Weber: The best thing is that as a teacher you have a lot to laugh about every day and that it is very varied. It's not as monotonous as it might be in other professions. It doesn't even exist here. You are invited to an interview once, then you have lessons again and then there is this and that, and that is very nice about the job. That's why I also appreciate the job. It never gets boring. The stupid thing is that you can very rarely switch off from the job. There is always something that still occupies you when you are at home. If you were dissatisfied with a lesson or have to correct a bad math test. Besides, there is always something to do. What I appreciate about other jobs is that you go home and finish.

Thank you for the interview, Mr. Weber!

Jana Häussler, Katharina Link

Interview Mr. Schipfer

Why did you become a teacher?Mr. Schipfer: I wasn't someone who said from the start that he really wanted to become a teacher. I went to secondary school myself and then did an apprenticeship. Then I wanted to study mechanical engineering and at some point I did my community service. Because I did this in the youth center, I noticed that I really enjoy working with young people. Then I thought about how I could combine my passion for technology with youth work. When I was in high school, I had a pretty cool technology teacher myself, whom I really liked and I decided to become a technology teacher. Then I didn't study mechanical engineering, but a teaching degree.

Have you ever regretted becoming a teacher?

Mr Schipfer: There are always days when it is sometimes harder and sometimes more fun, but the bottom line is that I really enjoy doing the job and have never regretted becoming a teacher, even if it is sometimes exhausting.

What do you do when you get home from school?

Mr. Schipfer: Eat.

Do you have a role model?

Mr. Schipfer: My technology teacher from before.

Which experience from your school days do you remember best?

Mr. Schipfer: Most of the time it has something to do with nonsense. There are quite a few of them. But I can't think of anything right now. That was a long time ago.

Describe yourself in three words.

Mr. Schipfer: I'm thinking about something else.

Which subject do you find the most important and which the least important?

Mr. Schipfer: I would say none. It depends on where you want to go.

Do you have a special talent?

Mr. Schipfer: I can eat a lot.

Have you ever done something that would have you included in the Guinness Book of Records?

Mr. Schipfer: I can't eat that much either.

Which RTL series would you most likely be part of?

Mr. Schipfer: At some point I stopped watching TV. I have my Playstation at home. And when I do want to watch TV, I watch the whole series from various providers.

And then do you have a series there that you would most like to be in?

Mr Schipfer: I think my favorite series Family Guy is absolutely awesome.

What is your favorite topic of discussion in the staff room?

Mr. Schipfer: We blaspheme students.

Do you have a pet?

Mr. Schipfer: These dust flakes are called dust bunnies that are lying around everywhere. I have a whole pack of them. But nothing else.

Do you want a pet?

Mr. Schipfer: I would like to have a dog again. I used to have a dog, but my apartment is too small and without a garden or landscape outside, I think it's stupid.

Thank you for the interview, Mr. Schipfer.

Interview Mrs. Schlipf

How are you feeling right now?

Ms. Schlipf: Right now I feel very happy because at the end of a week I always know what I've achieved, but it's the end of the week and I'm accordingly full.

Do you have a part-time job?

Ms. Schlipf: I don't have a part-time job.

If they had to have one because it was financially necessary, which one would it be?

Ms. Schlipf: There are many things that I like to do. I think that I would do something in the direction of art, since I'm also an art teacher. Of course, I would be happy if I could earn some money doing it.

What would you improve on this school?

Ms. Schlipf: I really like a lot of things here at the school. I would change the equipment a bit.

You are allowed to take 3 people with you to a lonely island, which ones would it be?

Ms. Schlipf: I would take someone with me to represent my family, I would take someone with me to represent my friends and I would take someone with me to represent my third area of ​​life, school, because the three areas are simply important to me.

Do you have a special characteristic?

Ms. Schlipf: I am creative.

What would have been your alternative to becoming a teacher?

Ms. Schlipf: It would have always been something with people. There was no concrete alternative because being a teacher worked out very well.

What are your hobbies?

Ms. Schlipf: My hobbies are art, architecture, travel and literature.

What was the most thoughtless comment you made in class?

Ms. Schlipf: Most of the time my words are faster than my brain and that's why several thoughtless things come out every day. And I think the majority of these rash things are student names.

Which countries have you been to?

Ms. Schlipf: In many. Maybe I'll start with the bigger trips.I traveled through Vietnam for a month and was in Kiev for a month in Ukraine, because I did an internship there. Then I was in South America for two months. There I mainly got to know the countries Brazil and Argentina. Then I was in Italy for a year and lived there because of my studies. And then there are actually such small trips, vacations and city trips that have taken me to many other places in Europe.

And what countries do you still want to travel to?

Ms. Schlipf: I have such a small list in my head. I'll just give you a printout of it, because otherwise it would probably be too much. I would like to go to Madrid and Israel. I would also like to visit Morocco and Iceland. And I would also like to travel to Scandinavia.

What was your worst grade and in which subject did you get it?

Ms. Schlipf: I don't even know which grade it was exactly, but I had it in physics and it must have been around 4 because I had that in my certificate.

What subjects do you teach?

Ms. Schlipf: I teach art, German, religion, geography and MUM.

What's your favorite movie?

Ms. Schlipf: My favorite film is “Forrest Gump”.

What is your favorite song?

Ms. Schlipf: My current favorite song is French. It is by the artist "Fhin" and is entitled "Quand On Arrive En Ville".

Do you have a life motto?

Ms. Schlipf: Nothing special. So it is very important to me in life that you are honest and sincere and not only think about yourself.

Thank you for the interview, Ms. Schlipf.

Jana Häussler, Katharina Link

Interview - Mr. Hildenbrand

Why did you become a teacher?

Mr. Hildenbrand: I started training a volleyball team very early. I was 15. That made me realize that it's very cool to work with young people. Since you don't earn that much as a volleyball coach, the next step came. I loved doing math and technology. The step to becoming a teacher was relatively close.

What would have been an alternative to this job?

Mr. Hildenbrand: For a long time I wanted to be a physiotherapist. But even there it happened relatively quickly because the employment opportunities or the professional prospects as a physiotherapist would not have been so rosy compared to the current job.

If all options were open to you, what would you invent?

Mr. Hildenbrand: A machine that takes care of cooking, ironing and cleaning at home. That would be such an all-purpose weapon that would make life a lot easier.

You are allowed to take 3 things with you to a lonely island, which ones would it be?

Mr. Hildenbrand: A Playstation, a full fridge and a comfortable armchair.

Where do all the food and drinks that are standing around in the staff room come from?

Mr. Hildenbrand: Somebody brings most of them with them when it's someone's birthday. It's the same with you. Then someone brings cake or sweets. With us teachers it is now a bit more extensive, just bring something with you.

Do you have a role model and if so, which one?

Mr. Hildenbrand: In principle, I oriented myself towards my father. The most important motto is never give up and fight to the end. I found that to be very positive for me. He's someone who's never really angry or angry, but always very factual. I saw that as a role model for myself in many situations.

What is best and what is worst about the job of a teacher?

Mr. Hildenbrand: The best thing is that you have a lot of variety and get to know a lot of different people and characters. And everyone would lie, vacations are of course not bad either. Worst of all are the people who don't listen and to whom you have to explain everything 25 times.

Did you play pranks earlier in your school days, and if so, which ones?

Mr. Hildenbrand: There were a few. Sometimes we took out the weights that were in the back of the board. Then the board no longer stopped, but always went upstairs. That drove the teachers a little crazy back then. I'd better keep the rest to myself.

You have won 1 million euros. What would you do with the money?

Mr. Hildenbrand: I would build myself a nice house. But I wouldn't spend it all at once.

What subjects do you teach?

Mr. Hildenbrand: I teach math and technology.

Is there a subject you most like to teach?

Mr. Hildenbrand: Yes, I really enjoy doing math and technology, although technology is still the nicer subject.

If you could introduce a new subject in school what would it be?

Mr. Hildenbrand: I think it would be a mixture of technology and computer science, because a lot of things can be combined that are a lot of fun, for which we unfortunately don't have the time, especially when it comes to programming or with robots, there would be in that regard really still something nice in there. But what exactly the subject should be called, I still have to think about it.

Which event from your school days do you remember most?

Mr. Hildenbrand: That was in secondary school, my physics teacher was so annoyed about it because a classmate repeatedly forgot his exercise book, that he hammered his head against the blackboard so that he had a big, huge bump on his head. I remember that for a very, very long time and very, very well.

Thank you for the interview, Mr. Hildenbrand!

Interview with Ludwig Machmer

Why did you choose to do volunteer service abroad?

Ludwig Machmer: I graduated from high school and after that I just wanted to leave, I wanted to get out of my home, my oasis of wellbeing, and I thought something new abroad would be very interesting.

Why did you choose Palestine?

Ludwig Machmer: At first I didn't even choose Palestine myself. I actually wanted to go to Tanzania. I then applied, my sending organization is Diakonie Württemberg. Then I was invited to a selection seminar and there was then proposed Palestine to me. I found that very interesting and, so to speak, discovered Palestine for myself.

Then where did you live in Palestine?

Ludwig Machmer: I lived in Ramallah, the capital of Palestine. I lived there in a guest house where I also worked myself. So I worked and lived in this house and did a lot of things around it.

What exactly were your tasks?

Ludwig Machmer: I was responsible for booking the guest house. I also managed the digital system, assigned people to the rooms, made breakfast, set up the rooms and just worked in the hotel business.

What language did you use to communicate?

Ludwig Machmer: I was lucky that my boss studied in Austria. He's a Palestinian, but he could speak German, I spoke German with him every now and then, but I mainly spoke in English. However, I also learned Arabic and was able to incorporate Arabic chunks again and again. Then it was a mix of English, Arabic and a little German.

How did you feel about the temperature difference?

Ludwig Machmer: It's very warm there. In summer, depending on the area, it is an average of 40 ° C. In winter it's not as cold as it is here, but the difference is there. It gets up to 5 ° C cold in winter, but the houses are not insulated, which means that the houses are also 5 ° C cold. Then it's pretty fresh there and you can enjoy the sun in summer.

What was different in Palestine compared to Germany?

Ludwig Machmer: The mentality of the people is very different. The religion is different, most of the people there are Muslim and the land is occupied by Israel. As a result, you live under an occupation and that makes things really difficult.

What famous places have you been in Palestine?

Ludwig Machmer: You probably know Jerusalem best, i.e. the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for Christians, the Western Wall for the Jews, the Temple Mount and the al-Aqsa Mosque for the Muslims. I have also been to many other famous places in Jerusalem. I have also been to the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, the Sea of ​​Galilee, Nazareth, and other various Christian sites around the country.

What did you miss most about Germany?

Ludwig Machmer: Whole grain bread, my family and friends.

What memories do you have of your time in secondary school in Ditzingen?

Ludwig Machmer: Pretty cool. I loved it. Back then I said it was the best time of my life, now I say it was the year in Palestine. Fortunately, I still have close ties to the teachers here.

Who was your favorite teacher?

Ludwig Machmer: Mr. Sterzelmaier and Mr. Fleisch were one of them. I also found Mr. Waldow and Mr. Ziegler very cool. And Frau Herbst. I can't even remember it that way.

What are your plans for the future?

Ludwig Machmer: I am currently training to be a stonemason. So tombs. I will do this training for another two years and what I will do afterwards is still open.


Thank you for the interview, Ludwig Machmer.

Interview Mrs. Braun

Hello Mrs. Braun. Why did you decide to become a teacher?

Ms. Braun: Because I've always enjoyed working with children and I enjoy interacting with people.

Is the teaching profession as you imagined it to be?

Ms. Braun: Yes, at the beginning I didn't think it would be that exhausting, but on the whole it is as I imagined it would be.

What is your favorite subject to teach?

Ms. Braun: I prefer to teach English.

What was your favorite subject in your school days?

Ms. Braun: It was math and it was actually like that all the time.

If you could introduce a new school subject, which one would it be?

Ms. Braun: That would be survival in everyday life. You learn, for example, how to fill out forms, how to quickly make yourself something for lunch, etc.

You have met many teachers so far. Can you tell us different types of teachers?

Ms. Braun: There are structured teachers who have lots of lists and write lots of notes for their colleagues. Then there are the chaotic teachers who somehow still get everything under control. Then there are the busy teachers who always muddle in the background, but don't show it to the outside world. Those are the main types that there are here at the school.

Which type of it are you?

Ms. Braun: I think I'm a mixture. I'm pretty organized, but I don't keep a hundred thousand lists like some other colleagues do.

Can you give us the most absurd comments from students?

Ms. Braun: I stood in front of the secretariat and there were fifth graders who looked at these pictures of us teachers, they were standing in front of the pictures of Mr Bürk and Mr Hauss. They then said they were siblings. Then one said to the other, but why? Then I thought she said something like they look alike, no the students then said their names are both Martin. That was a good highlight of the week.

In a sixth grade in English class I introduced the word fashion in detail and then at the end I asked again to be on the safe side: What does fashion mean? Then a student said Mardi Gras.

They recently got married. What was the highlight of your wedding?

Mrs. Braun: The highlight of our wedding was that my sister baked us a wonderful cake.

You will soon be a mother, how do you assess the development of the school system? Regarding your child's future?

Ms. Braun: I think it's difficult to see how everything is developing at the moment and I find it questionable that all students start here at our school and are taught at the same level in grades five and six and then split into grade seven . In my opinion, that is too late and in grades five and six there is no suitable type of school for some students that they should actually go to. Instead, they are here.

Are you planning to come back to school? If so, when?

Ms. Braun: I plan to come back. Yes, of course, at some point I want to go back to work, otherwise I will be extremely bored at home. It is not yet entirely clear when I want to start again. I will definitely stay at home for a year, maybe even a year and a half, but then I really want to start working again.

Thank you for the interview, Ms. Braun

Katharina Link, Jana Häussler

Interview Ms. Bleil

Hello Mrs. Bleil. You haven't been a teacher at our school for a year! How did you fare at the THS?

Ms. Bleil: At first it was a blow for me because I hadn't expected it and the whole procedure and the process were surprising and not very clear. When I arrived, I first had to completely adjust to everything. It was difficult because it's a different type of school. That was new territory for me because I had never been to a community school. I only knew it from theory and then to be part of it myself and then having to implement it is already difficult.

What is your experience?

Ms. Bleil: In any case, above all I have gained a lot of new experiences. I noticed that the student body is partly different. Here at the school I actually felt that teachers and students are a team. One looks forward to the other. In some classes of the THS, however, it was the case that the teacher was initially seen as an enemy. It took a while for the students to realize that somehow he or she is okay. My sixth grade was great. For them it was of course stupid at first because the class teacher was taken away from them. It was certainly difficult for the students and I also had to be new.

You have already mentioned a few differences between the RSD and the THS. Is there more?

Ms. Bleil: In terms of the lessons, from my point of view, the difference is that the preparation of the lessons at the community school is significantly more time-consuming. In the end, a unit (e.g. a topic) that lasted eight weeks had to be finished so that I could present it on the first day and then everyone can work on it for themselves.

How did it come about that you taught at THS last year?

Ms. Bleil: Actually, I studied primary and secondary school teaching, so not secondary school teaching, and after I finished my training and my legal clerkship, I was hired right here at the school. At the Realschule, which is actually not possible, but it was only possible because the education authority wanted it that way, i.e. the higher authority. It was clear from the start that I would only be here for three years, but over the course of three years I noticed that I like it here and I could imagine staying here. I talked a lot with Ms. Hügle and she said that she can imagine it as well. We then brought the request to the school office. The problem is that they then argue that I am not a secondary school teacher at all and therefore cannot teach here, even though they wanted to be that way themselves at the time.

Before you came to us, did you work as a teacher anywhere else?

Ms. Bleil: Yes, but that was the school where I did my legal clerkship.

What reason made you come back to us?

Ms. Bleil: Because I am very happy here and I enjoy doing my job every day. Apart from getting up ... I am really happy to see the students and colleagues. In this one year I noticed that I was missing that.

Now a completely different question. What subjects do you teach?

Ms. Bleil: I teach religion, sports and German.

Which of these is your favorite subject?

Ms. Bleil: My favorite subject is definitely sport. This subject is generally the coolest because you can get out of the normal “everyone sits in their seats and have to be quiet”. I think the students notice that too. That is good for them.

When you went to school as a child, what did you like most and what least?

Ms. Bleil: In elementary school I liked looking up at the teachers. These were a role model for me. I always loved what they did. And I always thought: That's how I want to be. You really shaped me. I always found what they did and said to be very important and right. Of course, what I didn't like the least was the stress before the exams. But overall, I don't really have bad memories of my school days as a child.

And how is it as a teacher today?

Ms. Bleil: Today I really appreciate what the environment can make up: schoolchildren, parents, bosses and colleagues. When the environment is right, lessons can be really fun. It is really bad when one is dishonest towards the other. When things happen, whether with a colleague or a student, you should be responsible for it and fix it again. That often only makes it half as wild as trying to wriggle around it somehow.

Is there anything else you want to get rid of?

Ms. Bleil: I am very happy to be here again and I hope that I can stay too.

Thank you for the interview, Ms. Bleil!
