Hi, my name is Barbara Slate and I recently joined Wetzel Services. I am a German native from Munich with 10 years of experience as a Gymnasium certified teacher for German and English.
I have known Paul and his team since 2006 when they helped me relocate to Greenville on a work assignment for Christ Church Episcopal School. For a year I served as a link between the Bavarian Ministry of Education and CCES, working with the teachers and students on matters concerning the German program and its curriculum. I enjoyed my stint abroad because it provided me with a lot of new impressions and experiences.
While in Greenville, I met my husband Corie in an amateur photography class and after three years of traveling back and forth between Germany and the US we decided to settle down in Greenville when our son Jasper was born in 2010.
I enjoy living here and try to spend as much time outdoors with my family as possible. We like to go on walks around our neighborhood, ride our bikes, and hike the national parks in the area. In addition to that, I practice yoga and like to read.
I am excited about the prospect of working with my new colleagues and being involved in upcoming projects such as the overhaul of the Intercultural Training Program. If you see me around the office, make sure to say hi – I am looking forward to meeting you!
All the best!
