Seeing Pacific From Abroad, Part 3

This is Anna Heggenberger’s second time attending school in the United States.

A native of Germany, Heggenberger, then 16, stayed with relatives in San Francisco and attended Mission High School for a couple months in 2006. The school was a lot of fun and was a turning point in helping her understand math, “because it’s taught differently, a little slower, and that was good for me.”

Heggenberger is among five foreign language teaching assistants at Pacific University this year. She is here on a Fulbright grant, allowing her to help teach foreign language courses and support activities for other Pacific students learning German.
