After completing her teaching studies for English and Spanish, Michaela Höller moved abroad. As a foreign language assistant and for her teaching internship she spent a total of 3 years in England. During this time she became aware of the OeAD lectureship programme and applied for a position in Mexico - her absolute favorite destination. After one year of waiting, her application was successful and in the autumn of 2013 she joined the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) as a lecturer for German language and Austrian culture. Her original plan to stay a maximum of 3 years changed and Michaela Höller stayed the entire period of 5 years – not least because of the motivated students and her very dedicated boss. In addition to teaching, she organized film evenings, invited movie producers, started a pilot project with an app that subtitles Austrian television for the deaf and language learners and dealt a lot with cultural learning.
Since the summer of 2018 she is back in Austria and teaches English and Spanish at the Sacre Coeur in Vienna.
