One of Linganore’s new teachers Mrs. Gabriele Miller, is continuing the German classes at school. 

Mrs. Miller is originally from Cologne, Germany and moved to the United States 35 years ago. She met her husband while on a skiing trip in Austria, and decided to come to the U.S. with him so that he could finish college.

She studied at a tech school in Cologne and at Montgomery Community College, Carroll  Community College, and the University of Maryland in the United States. In Germany, she started with studying photography. 

Her first job was working at a photography company in Germany. After moving and studying in America, she became a teacher. She has taught all ages including preschool and college levels. This is her first time teaching high school aged students.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays Mrs. Miller teaches at Carroll Community College.  

She is also continuing the German Honor Society, for students who have taken classes higher than German 3.

When asked what she liked most about LHS she said, “I like the students at Linganore the most. They are all so friendly and it feels very welcoming here.”

She usually goes to Germany in the summer and hopes that when she retires she can visit Germany more often.

Mrs. Miller loves to travel. She has traveled throughout Europe and enjoyed her trips to Italy with her family when she was little.

Mrs. Miller is excited to teach her students this year and help them learn a foreign language and improve their skills.
