Milli Metzker

VP Sunset Elementary School

Milli was born in Mexico and has lived in other countries such as India, Brazil, The Netherlands, and Germany. She moved with her husband and twin daughters from Cologne, Germany to Miami in 2010.

Milli looked for a way to allow her daughters to retain their German culture. This is when she came across GIPA and the German International Studies program at Sunset Elementary into which she enrolled her daughters three years ago.

Milli received a BA in International Business Administration which encouraged her to take over a family owned business and run it for several years. Milli also worked in the marketing department of Augen Optics in Mexico and for Messe Duesseldorf in Germany.

Milli likes to volunteer for GIPA and other school activities, but in her free time you will find her cooking or reading books, which are her two passions.

Job Description:  VP Sunset Elementary School
The VP for Sunset is one of the most involved positions on the board based solely on the number of parents and students who are involved in that program.  Like all GIPA school VPs, the position serves as the primary liaison between the organization and the school and the first point of contact for all issues relating to our programs at Sunset.  In addition to coordinating with the school on any number of fundraising and culturally based events, the VP works closely with the room parents at each grade level to ensure continuity of information throughout the various stages at Sunset.   The VP organizes the all-important First Grade picnic as well as coordinating classroom and parent participation in things such as the Oktoberfest, Deutsch-Land Global, Advent Kalendar, Lantern Festival, Nikolaus Stockings, and of course the annual GIPA Gala. The VP is also involved in the International Book Fair and with the year-round coordination of the GIPA library team at Sunset. Like all VPs, the position at Sunset is responsible for informing the board of activities at the school and for providing timely updates to both the website and newsletter editors about the happenings at the school.
