Principal and Teacher:  Beate Keim


I was born and raised nearby Cologne, Germany and have been living in California for almost 11 years with my husband and my two sons.

I started working for GASA as a German preschool assistant from 2012 to 2014. In 2014 I joined the Saturday School in Temple City to teach Unterstufe I. I am currently teaching a multi-level class ages 6-9 and I am also preparing the students for A1 testing.

Since August 2015 I am also working for the German Flag Program at Roosevelt Middle School in Glendale as an assistant teacher and prepare students in 7th grade for the A2 and B1 test.

I love to share my knowledge about German traditions and enjoy teaching children in the German language with reading books, German songs, games, little plays and arts and crafts. My motto is: Learning should be fun!!!

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.
