“The researchers, faculty and staff at TUM were incredibly helpful in getting my family settled in Munich. They found an apartment for us that was ideally located, as well as a preschool for my daughter which she loved. The intellectual climate of the School of Education was exactly the environment I hoped to find on my sabbatical. I connected with old colleagues and met many new ones, and initiated several new writing projects while also moving forward my own work. My only regret is that I was unable to stay for the entire year, but I hope to on my next sabbatical.”
