Saskia Heiniger

Teacher for English, German, Art

Since my own school days, I’ve had an interest in art and literature, as well as in working with children and young people. That’s why I chose to go into teaching. After studying English and German studies at the University of Basel, I got my teaching qualification at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW).

I’ve been working at Academia Primar&Sek since 2020 and I loved the approach from the very beginning. Smaller class sizes and the school’s approach allow me to tailor my lessons freely to adapt to the different needs of my students. I believe lessons need to be inspiring and motivational above all. In my experience, even as a teacher you never stop learning, and you always have to be prepared to acquire new skills and expertise.

The warm and welcoming atmosphere and close-knit community within the school make day-to-day teaching and learning a special experience.
