It is with great honor that I like to introduce myself, Annegret Richardson, as the new director of German ISD. For the last 3 years I had the pleasure of working as the elementary teacher here at German ISD and looking forward to extending my passion for the German language and culture in my new role as School Director.
I grew up in a small town in der Eifel in Germany, and received my state recognized Educator Credential from the Fachhochschule in Prüm. After moving to the USA, I continued my education and received my early childhood director certification for the state of Colorado in 1991. In 2016 I decided to follow my children to Texas and found this amazing school that has become my second home.
Here at German ISD we provide a learning environment deeply rooted in the central European culture and education system, and we also encourage the development of a global perspective and community building.
Since German ISD’s founding in 2009, we remain the only German language immersion program in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex providing full-time, weekday German language instruction to children 18 months to 10 years old.
From day one, students are exposed to German language and culture in a warm and supportive environment. The school focuses on learning through child-directed play experiences and a curriculum based on the “Bayerischer Bildungs- und Erziehungsplan für Kinder in Tageseinrichtungen.”
Our motivated team of educators believes in the balance of preschool and play, which enhances growth and development of its children in all areas: physically, socially, emotionally, creatively and intellectually.
German ISD expanded its educational curriculum to include Lower Elementary classes, starting with Kindergarten through fourth grade.
Our school’s unique program has various opportunities for your child to learn and grow into a successful student and well-rounded global citizen. As parents, you have a great variety of schools in the Metroplex to choose from. However, there is one choice when it comes to the best of German education, culture, language, and a place that feels a bit like home back in good-old Germany – and it is GERMAN ISD.
