Sabine Maiberger, Schulleiterin
Sabine Maiberger joined SIS Berlin in the late Spring of 2020 as principal.
Ms. Maiberger grew up in Bavaria and became a certified early childhood teacher. She continued her education in educational science at the Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University, religious pedagogy at the University in Eichstätt, and finished her undergraduate studies with a master’s in education in the USA. She also holds a Montessori Diploma and brings 15 years of educational leadership experience from Finland and China to SIS Berlin.
Her passion is rooted in integral and sustainable education using the inquiry-based learning method from the International Baccalaureate Program (IB). It is her goal to inspire children of all ages to become stewards of their own lives, while immersed in a bilingual learning environment. This goal unfolded not only through her work experience but also in her private life where she loves to speak multiple languages.
Living and working at SIS in Berlin allows Ms. Maiberger to combine her dedication to international education in a dynamic city with supporting children and their families.
