Bettina Hoops

Adjunct Professor (French)

I was born and raised in Bremen, Germany and earned a BA and MA in art history from the Université de Sorbonne, Paris IV. I later obtained a second BA and a teaching degree for German and French from Eastern Michigan University and am currently enrolled in the DML (Doctor of Modern Languages) program at Middlebury College.

I have almost 30 years of experience teaching German and French as well as training World Language teachers at the University of Michigan. This year I will be teaching German at a private high school in Ann Arbor, Michigan and I am very excited to be an adjunct instructor for French at Emory & Henry College.

I believe in the following saying by Alexander von Humboldt: “The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have never viewed the world.”

My goal is to give my students a window, from which they can look into the world and a mirror, in which they can see themselves.
