My name is Leonie Hintze, and I am from Germany where I studied education specializing in elementary education, and worked as an elementary school teacher for more than six years. I developed a curriculum in music for elementary schools in Lower Saxony (the state of Germany where I am from) that is still being used. I have been living in the States for the past eleven years, seven of those here in East Lansing, where my husband is working as a professor at MSU. This year I am also starting my Ph.D. in German Studies! I have been staying home with our four children (two sets of twins) so far, but taught the German for Preschoolers program for the past four years. I am very excited to see your children in my preschool class soon! Bis bald!
