Theresa is a writer and qualified teacher. She taught History and Politics for sixteen years in secondary schools in the UK before leaving the UK in the summer of 2017 in order to move to Munich – one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. She is currently teaching English as a Foreign Language to adults and doing research for a book she is writing on the history and memory of the Third Reich in Munich, something she wrote about in her M.Phil. thesis. She might one day turn her M.Phil. into a PhD but for the time being, when not teaching English or working in the archives, she can be found admiring the Blaue Reiter paintings in the Lenbachhaus, enjoying the changing seasons in the English Garden, wandering around the stalls in the Viktualienmarkt or eating Obazda and pretzels, washed down with a decent Helles, in one of the city’s many beer halls.
