Teaching in a Berlin public school from 1988 - 1991 presented many unique challenges. Coping within a hostile encampment, the unexpected opening and dismantling of the wall, plus the rapid reunification of the two German nations involved one American teacher in unexpected ways. Please join her as she discusses the historic background as well as her personal observations during this tumultuous time.
