The first two weeks of my internship in Newport Beach

I found the German School Campus last year through the Pasch network. The Pasch initiative networks over 2000 schools worldwide, all of which revolve around the German language. The German School Campus stood out among many schools because of the inviting website and the many cultural events.
After contacting them, the organization for the trip, the visa, and possible scholarships followed. Through the DAAD, I received financial support and was able to start the internship in August 2022.

The first few days went by very quickly, as we did a lot: we ran the first errands, picked up the car, and explored the beautiful beaches. But also, on the German School Campus, there was a warm welcome in the form of a small boat tour through the harbor of Newport Beach.

After getting to know each other for the first time, the preparations for the school began in the new school year, where the upcoming events and the new classes were discussed. A few days later, we started with the traditional enrollment ceremony and a cozy get-together with coffee and cake.

My tasks include helping organize events, assisting in class, and introducing my home. Right at the beginning, I gave the children an insight into life in Southern Germany through a PowerPoint and informed them about culture and traditions. As I progressed, I had the opportunity to learn more about communicating with parents, getting to know other schools and teachers in the area, and experiencing the daily life of a private school.

Through the old buildings and the many Mexican impressions through food, music, and handmade goods, I learned about a new and fascinating world for me.
