Kloeckl-Jiménez awarded the Goethe Institute Scholarship

Central Lakes College language instructor Tracey Kloeckl-Jiménez was awarded the Goethe Institute Scholarship from The Board of Directors for the Central States Language Teachers. This award, which allows Kloeckl-Jiménez to study in Germany and live with a German family, was in recognition of her professional commitment and significant involvement in the teaching of world languages. 

Kloeckl-Jiménez, who teaches Spanish and German at the college, will travel this spring while on sabbatical.  

The Goethe Institute also recently awarded Kloeckl-Jiménez an additional scholarship, so she will be studying in both Munich and in Schwäbisch Hall for a month this coming summer.  

In January, she traveled through Southern California studying our Mexican-American heritage; and in February, she traveled throughout the southern cone of South America. 

“These experiences to travel and live with local families where the target language is spoken are invaluable learning opportunities,” Kloeckl-Jiménez. “I feel truly fortunate to have had these opportunities, and will most certainly share things I learned with students, family, and the community.”
