UL staff

On Nov 22-23, four VRG-Djursholm staff members attended an intensive leadership training – Utvecklande Ledarskap: “Developmental leadership is a leadership development program characterized by a leader who acts as a role model, raises moral and ethical questions, as well as acts from a visible sense of common values.

After this training sessions, nearly all staff at our school have been trained . . .

For the Viktor Rydberg organization, developing leadership is a priority.  Since 2010, nearly 200 employees within the entire organization (all 4 schools and the main office) have attended Utvecklande Leadarskap training.

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
