Hallo! Mein Name ist Dennis Wilt (Herr Wilt for German class - I do not respond to Mr. Wilt). Although this is only my second year at Mount Nittany Middle, I also taught English at a university in Graz, Austria during the 2018-19 academic year. Surely, I have worked with students from all levels K-16, but I am particularly fond of working with middle school students as they start to understand themselves more fully and grow into their own skin (both physically and figuratively).
I am originally from Altoona, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA, in 2018. While there, I was able to study abroad in Germany and twice in Mexico; in fact, I have been to over 15 countries. Traveling and getting to know people from different cultures deeply - beyond cultural stereotypes - are my passions, second only to teaching students how fun and rewarding it is to understand, write, and speak in another language.
Some favorites while we’re here:
Favorite Disney Movie: Lilo and Stitch
Favorite Video Game: The Legend of Zelda
Favorite food: Auflauf - Check it out here
Favorite Color: Grün! - Green
Please check your class’s CANVAS page for the week’s agenda and Google Meet Links.
Again, my contact information:
I look forward to this year! Tschüss!
In regards to the 6th grade schedule for this year, I misspoke: After German, students will be going to French class with Madame Helmerich.
