Katrin Thum (PYP P.E. teacher and PYP German Support)

Born and raised in Carinthia/Austria, I always wanted to explore different countries & cultures. After my gap year in the USA I started to read law in Vienna where I obtained a Master´s Degree. After my apprenticeship at the court of justice in Graz and Vienna, my marriage brought me to a lot of different countries & cultures where I started to become  

involved with teaching. I obtained a Diploma as a dyslexia trainer, a teacher´s degree in methodology and didactic of German as a Foreign language and a degree in Primary Teaching and Learning (incl. P.E.). 

Being a mum of three children and traveling the world with them due to my husband´s profession I became more and more involved in the International Schools, and the different curricula they offer. I was able to work at the last two schools my children went to in Aberdeen, Scotland and Abu Dhabi, UAE and I am delighted that I will be joining the ISC team now in Velden, Austria.

I hope that I can contribute to the support, guide and motivation of our students and that my background and also my experiences will help provide an international mindset and provide a love to life-long learning experience to our students. 

During my free time I love spending time with my family and enjoy all different kinds of sports – outdoors as well as indoors.
