Willkommen! Welcome to Frau Ritter's Class:

My name is Ashley Ritter and I will be guiding you on an exploration of German language and culture. I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin-but I made it to Texas as soon as I could! My hometown has a large population with German heritage--similar to Tomball. This sense of community has fostered my interest in language and culture. I hope to take you on a journey of second language acquisition this year.


I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I received a Bachelor of Arts in German and Spanish and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Later I completed graduate coursework in Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. This is my 4th year of teaching and will be my 2nd year at Tomball High School. This year might be very different since we are beginning the year with remote learning, but we will get through it together and learn German. You can do this. I have confidence in your ability to do the work and high standards for your success-whether we are conducting our classes in person or online.


I am excited about the 2020-2021 school year and look forward to getting to know all of you this year. My goal this year is to improve your fluency in speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as to immerse you in the diverse culture of the German Speaking World.

  • schoology: I will be posting regularly in schoology for our class. I will continue to use schoology regularly once we return to in person instruction. In person instruction will mirror remote instruction by doing similar activities/using schoology in class.
