Name: Jeanette Geisel
How long have I worked at GSIS?
I came to Hong Kong to join GSIS in September 2015.
What did I do before that?
I grew up in Hessen and the past 11 years I lived in Hildesheim. There I worked in the field of child and youth services in a social-pedagogical practice.
What has an important impact for my work?
In my work at GSIS it is important to me to encourage children and young people in their development into self-confident, independent and self-determined personalities and accompany and encourage the preservation of their rights. The support of parents in educating their children is also important to me, as well as cooperation with the teachers in order to contribute to a positive and motivating atmosphere at school.
