Leslie A Pahl

Language Center

B.A.(Political Science and German), M.A. and Ph.D. (German literature specializing in the Weimar period): University of California, Berkeley

Ms. Pahl has taught German at CCSF for ... quite a while now. She also works in the Language Center where she provides instructionally-related student services, assisting students and instructors in using language-learning technology and various multi-media resources.

Blogs? Yes! Frau Pahl keeps a nifty blog updated for the German Language Program (http://ccsfdeutschnaklar.blogspot.com/), where she posts items and news of interest to those students learning German at CCSF. She will be developing a German1A online class in Fall of 2016, which will be offered in Spring of 2017.

Since German is perceived as a "difficult to learn" language (what with 4 declension cases, primary and secondary adjective endings, and, um Himmels willen!, 10-syllable compound words), Ms. Pahl has evolved her teaching philosophy to include some salesmanship, much encouragement, and a class-by-class refutation of T.L. Peacock's quote that "Life is too short to learn German."

.

When she is not teaching or in the Language Center, Ms. Pahl keeps up with political events and commentary (she is the proud owner of a Political Junkie t-shirt and button), enjoys Wait, Wait, Don't Tell me! on a weekly basis, and plans at least one new meal per week taken from her extensive cookbook and recipe collection.

I aim to teach students the skills necessary to ascertain the validity and reliability of the information they are overwhelmed with on a daily basis. The truth shall make you free, but only when you can separate it from the chaff.

I believe in the college experience, which is sometimes hard to gain, but can be found in the community college. This said, I also believe in finding the most expeditious path through schooling so to save the student time and the public its resources. The net result is that our department is lean, it does not venture to duplicate its own classes nor those offered in so many CCSF departments. It means that we will use alternative delivery to supplement instruction, but will not replace the classroom and lab as a place to meet and network with future colleagues. It means I am flexible with program requirements, accepting transfer or waiving requriements and advising accordingly. My door is open, when you enter my office you become for that moment the most important matter in the universe.

Advisor to Alpha Gamma Sigma California Community College Honors Society, Omega Chapter at CCSF (since 1999).
