Until recently, Sarah Kupke was the Head of the Sindelfingen Campus at the International School of Stuttgart. Before moving to Germany in 1990, she taught in primary, secondary and special education as well as teaching undergraduate education at the Froebel College in London, UK. Sarah has worked with Debra Rader, to lead Intercultural Understanding institutes since 2019. Passionate about the learning process, Sarah believes that intercultural understanding is vital to our appreciation of one another. Mutual respect, a genuine interest in each other, the ability to empathise and show compassion are attitudes and values that we continue to learn throughout our lives and need to be intentionally taught in schools as well as in the home.
