My name is Cassie Shelton and I love teaching German! I participated in a GAPP exchange in Memmingen, Germany when I was 15 and I have been addicted to all things German ever since. I have a degree in German and Travel and Tourism from BYU and a Masters in Education from Boise State. I am the mother of 4 amazing daughters and I'm married to the coolest husband that ever lived. I love to read, travel, hike, pick huckleberries and chase tornadoes. Every other year I take a group of Mt. View German students to Germany where we visit castles, cathedrals, monasteries, museums and other amazing sites. These students stay with German host families and they develop genuine respect and friendship for each other. I love seeing my students use the language we learn in class in real life situations in Germany. What I enjoy most about teaching German is seeing the change that comes over my students as they gain a global perspective and newfound appreciation for a culture that is not their own.
