My name is Dietmar Burkhardt and at Schuldorf Bergstraße I have been working as a school counsellor since September 2015. In particular I like the good atmosphere at the school and the openess for new ways of being a school. It is the variety of people who learn and teach or work in other fields here that I really appreciate. It is nice to be here every day in such beautiful natural surroundings, having a wonderful landscape before my eyes.
Since 1987 I have been a protestant pastor, first in different parishes, then I worked as a journalist in the department of communication of the Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau.
Since a longer visit in Beirut/Lebanon in 2005, where it was mainly about the study of Islam and interfaith relations, I have been interested in the coexistence of people from different cultures and religions. For this reason I teach at the Goethe University in Frankfurt and at the Protestant University of Darmstadt from time to time. So the promotion of intercultural understanding and exchange is a special concern of mine.
I am married and a father of three adult children. Helping children and young people find their own way into the world is my motivation.
I find relaxation in hiking, playing piano and guitar, writing, reading and travelling.

We currently offer training for teachers at school with the focus on intercultural conflicts.
Assisting the prevention team: active support of those affected by bullying in classes with the goal of reducing these occurences.
Involving the systemic view in counselling sessions:
