Welcome to the AATG of Minnesota!

The Minnesota Association of American Teachers of German is for future, current, and former German educators at all levels of instruction.

Mission:  The MN-AATG supports the teaching of the German language and German-speaking cultures in elementary, secondary and post-secondary education in the United States. The MN-AATG promotes the study of the German-speaking world in all its linguistic, cultural and ethnic diversity, and endeavors to prepare students as transnational, transcultural learners and active, multilingual participants in a globalized world.

MN AATG Banquet:  Each May MN-AATG hosts a banquet honoring German educators, programs, and students who have performed well on the National German Exam.  

Membership: We strive to serve all former, current, and future German educators in our state, and encourage each to become a member of the National AATG organization, which provides our funding and structural center.
