Hallo, my name is Berna Fowler and this is my third year at Lockhart HS. I am very excited to teach a language and share experiences that are a major part of my life. In order to get acquainted, I would like to tell you just a little about myself. I was born in Heidenheim, Germany, to Turkish parents, and I lived in Germany until I was fourteen years old. At that time, my family moved back to Izmir, Turkey where I went to a German high school, and later attended Hacettepe University in Turkey, and majored in German Language and Literature. In 2008, I came to the states and was married to Brian Fowler, who is in the United States Air Force. I eventually went back to school and became certified in 2011 as a German teacher. Although I continually tutored, here in the states, the first German teaching job that I had was at Lackland ISD 2011-12. In December of 2013 I became a new and VERY proud mother of a beautiful baby boy, who we named Devin. One thing I have always loved to do is travel. I have traveled throughout Europe, and experienced many wonderful things. These are what I want to share with my classes, and hopefully start a passion for learning the German language.
