3. What do you think of social networks?
Mrs. Tschöpe: You have to handle it very carefully. Of course, it offers a lot of advantages, but you have to look very closely who you contact and what you say. You always have to be clear: Who would I invite into my living room!
Mr. Siebert: You have to be very careful with social networks!
Mrs. Dinter: Social networks today are up-to-date media, they are generally very important for the youth, but it is also often overestimated. Real communications could be lost through social networks.

Mr. Rudolph: I use WhatsApp often, yes. However, I also often use the “Sparkassen – App”, the “Spiegel – App”, a “Mail App”, a “Calendar App”. I use my phone very often and sometimes too much.
Editorial staff: Mr. Rudolph, you can´t tell us that you use your phone very often and sometimes to much for the “Sparkassen – App” or the “Mail – App, so what are you really doing with your cellphone? Is that true? Are you joking?

6. Has it always been your dream job to become a teacher or have you ever had other ideas?
Mrs. Tschöpe: Sure, I sometimes had other ideas for a job, but at the end of my schooling, I choose not to follow these ideas. For example, I wanted to be a translater. But I could also imagine being a primary school teacher.
Mr. Rudolph: Originally, I also wanted to be a journalist, but then I decided for the job teacher.
7. How did you come to this school?
Mr. Siebert: I was lucky.
Mrs. Dinter: I came to this school because there were vacancies. I also teach Latin and that’s why I was gladly taken at our school. The combination of subjects played a role as well.
