Emma Woelk has been fascinated by German language, history and culture since she first left Austin for Berlin as a high school exchange student. She is excited to share this interest with St. Edward's students in the classroom and through Deutschklub (German Club) and study abroad opportunities. In addition to teaching language classes, she is particularly interested in 20th-century German history, German-Jewish literature and postwar theater.
