Since my kids are older, I have taken on a few more jobs. The main one is work­ing at the for­mer “Immanuel Bap­tis­ten Ge­meinde”, where I grew up in. Once 450 Ger­mans, now it is a mix of all kinds of cul­tures. I work there as a sec­re­tary 20 hours a week. You can call me at 604 327-4010. They have a “Mama Fit Camp” on Fri­days and Mon­days for ladies and young chil­dren. Then, I work as a teacher at the West­side Ger­man School with chil­dren be­tween 6 and 8. Plus, I help a cou­ple of other classes pre­pare songs for the Lan­tern Fes­ti­val and the Niko­laus Fes­ti­val. As a vol­un­teer, I pre­pare for the Euro­pean Fes­ti­val, held on the last weekend in May. Fi­nally, I am pro­mot­ing a band by help­ing them with blog writ­ing, so­cial me­dia and pic­ture edit­ing. This is in ad­di­tion to work with other smaller clients where I work on news­let­ters, press re­leases, ad sales, fundrais­ing & more. It is my dream to start a Ger­man Play­group, that will help even more young chil­dren learn Ger­man, be­fore switch­ing over to a Ger­man School.
