Author and  Paintress
If somebody says something pleasant
He donates himself 
As the rain moistens the soil 
And gives fertility to the ground. 

Silence is not  
Our nature, 
Is fruitless and kills 
Every relationship

Teacher at German schools:
With the growing number of non-German children, more and more problems arose from the poor language skills of these children.

She succeeded repeatedly in saving children, merely because of their lack of lingual knowledge, to be shunted off to special schools for mentally handicapped by her German colleagues. Not only a few of them could been taken back to the regular schools, and some even qualified, like many others, for secondary schools and later on for university.

Her immense experience, especially with regard to Turkish children, she passed on to young teachers in seminars on IPTS, a local institute for educational training of teachers. She focused on raising a feelingin her German fellow teachers for the problems, which result from the different structure of the Turkish language, as well as the different cultural background of the children.
