Cindy Pühringer, PYP 4 teacher

I was born in Olympia, WA in the Northwest corner of the USA where I attended Gonzaga University graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education with Endorsements in Elementary Education and Psychology in 1993. After completion and realizing I needed to see and experience more of the world, I accepted a 2 year position in Lesotho, South Africa with the American Peace Corps as a Primary Resource Teacher supporting 6 rural mountain villages. This was yet another key towards opening my door to international education. Following that amazing experience I decided to head back towards my roots and accepted a teaching position in Philadelphia at a Residential Facility working with many different types of children with various special needs working on individual education programs both for educational and life skills. After making some life changes and marrying we decided to move back to my husband’s roots and relocated in Ansfelden (near Linz.). Initially working at the English Play School I continued helping many people from children to executives and at many prominent Upper Austrian companies. For nearly 14 years I worked at Berlitz Language School as an English Native Speaker and as the Language Manager of Instruction for all language instructors. Most recently I worked at the Lehrlingsakademie teaching “English in a different way” focusing on practical communication skills for the working environment.
I am super excited about joining the Lisa-Junior Team this year and working with such a motivated and engaged team of professionals. As the mother of our bi-lingual daughter, Emma, I see it as a new opportunity to support her learning experience in a different way. As an international teacher I face many of the same challenges you do daily and hope to be part of the learning support for your children’s needs.
