Katrin Kempiners

German School Faculty

Katrin Kempiners is the current Max Kade Teaching Fellow for German at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. Her classes include German for Beginners, German in Business and Culture as well as workshops for Academic Writing in German. She is especially interested in promoting intercultural awareness and competences in her students and, to that end, likes to include contemporary cultural issues as well as music and other media in her lessons.

Born in Germany, but raised in Chicago, her family moved back to Germany (near Stuttgart) in 1989. Katrin received a degree in Business from the Berufsakademie Stuttgart in 2003, a B.A. in English and German Linguistics from the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg in 2008 and completed her German Staatsexamen in German and English in 2012 focusing primarily on bilingualism, language and cognition and literature and film after 9/11. When she is not teaching, Katrin travels, plays sports, enjoys singing and plays guitar.
