Margaret Marusek studied Germanic studies at the University of Chicago before coming to Austria to teach the English language and American culture to Austrian high school students through the USTA program. Lessons that begin by discussing a cultural topic and end in student-lead discussions of historical conditions and ideologies are her specialty.

During her second year as a USTA, Margaret will also be attending the University of Vienna, pursuing a masters degree in comparative literature.
