Dr. David Blumberg

I started teaching German at Campolindo High School in 1997 after receiving my doctorate in German literature from UC Berkeley, where I had also earned my bachelors and masters degrees in German. As an undergraduate, I spent my junior year studying at the Georg August Universität in Göttingen, West Germany. During a break from my studies in 1990, I lived in Berlin, which at that time was going through huge political and social changes. In 1993, I received a research grant from the German Academic Exchange Service and spent a year working on my dissertation in Stuttgart, Germany. In addition to my years of service at Campolindo, I taught German for six years as a graduate student instructor at UC Berkeley.
