Mary Ann Niemczura was born in Massachusetts, reared in Colorado and now lives in Upstate New York. After studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Heidelberg in West Germany and Vanderbilt University, she earned five degrees in German Language, Literature, Culture, History and Geography. A consummate professional with a passion for teaching, she has taught German for forty-seven years and also taught in Germany as a Fulbright exchange teacher. She is married and has two children.
After gathering many memories as a result of her travels, she decided it was time to document some of them in the form of a poetical memoir called A Past Worth Telling. At heart, she is a storyteller and uses this technique in her classes.
By relating stories of her travels and her life, she has personalized her book for others to relate to. May they too enjoy the journey. She will travel to Germany in July 2014 to visit friends and to see firsthand the current school and teachers with whom she video conferences.
