Denise Ilktac: Principal / K-teacher
I was born and raised in Berlin. After graduating from the “Gymnasium”, I have been working as an actress, speaker and host on stage. In 2002 I also began teaching “camera and theater acting” to children and teenagers. From 2008-2012 I studied Deaf Studies, German Sign language and Rehabilitation Sciences at Humboldt-University, Berlin. During that time I also worked as a social services case worker for families with disabilities. I was teaching language classes for people with disabilities and I also held interactive workshops for children and teenagers about alcohol and drug prevention. In 2012 I moved to beautiful Ventura, California with my family. I joined GASA in 2016. I am currently teaching our youngest students at our Saturday School. During the week I am teaching German classes for adults via Zoom. I love teaching and I am looking forward to meeting you soon.
