Peter Seilheimer, MA
Peter earned a BA in German, Russian, and gender studies from Lewis and Clark College and an MA in international education from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California. His interest in international education started early, when he discovered a fascination with language and the connections it enables one to make with others. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, Peter taught English with the Fulbright Commission in rural Austria and taught young learners at the German International School of Portland, Oregon. He has also been a counselor and teacher at Waldsee, an immersive German-language summer camp in the northern woods of Minnesota and worked as a project assistant at the German Academic Exchange Service. Upon completing his master’s, Peter worked for two years as a program leader for Thinking Beyond Borders, leading groups of students on a global comparative gap year program focused on a critical examination of international development and social justice in Latin America, West Africa, and Southeast Asia. Most recently, Peter was a year-long Trustees Fellow for IHP Health and Community and has led programs for two summers with The Experiment in International Living.
