Anna Zimmer

Professor Zimmer has been instrumental in enhancing the vitality of the German program since her arrival at NMU. Her interactive pedagogy, dedication to students, and personal attention reveal themselves in all aspects of her professional life - from her research to her teaching to her Kaffeeklatsch (coffee hour) at her house, where German conversation intermingles with coffee and her home-made pastries in the classic Central European tradition of Gemuetlichkeit (cozy conviviality).
