Katja Petrascheck – School Director and teacher

I studied languages at the Language University of Nizhni Novgorod in Russia and majored in German and English. I have been teaching adults and children for more than 20 years. I have extensive international experience working in Russia, Germany, Switzerland, UK, Australia and the US.
Since 2014 I’ve been with GASA, combining teaching A1-B1 levels and being the acting School director of the Encinitas campus. My passion is to work with children, contributing to their growth and development of language skills and their multicultural understanding.


About Us

Multilingualism is the norm in most of the world and we believe that children who speak and write more than one language will be better prepared for life in the 21st century with its growing global economy. The best way to master another language is to start learning at an early age.
