What do you like best about being a teacher?

What I like best about being a teacher is the contact with the students.  It is inspiring to hear young people’s opinions and thoughts about the questions we discuss, to see them develop and grow as human beings.  It is so great to see their excitement when they succeed in achieving the goals they have set up for themselves.  

What areas of school development are you particularly interested in?

I am very interested in how we as teachers can develop our teaching to help every student find their inner motivation and creativity.  How can we develop learning situations that work for different individual learning styles?  How can school develop curious and creative students who are willing to trust their own abilities?

What do you like best about being a teacher?

The interaction with the students both in and outside of the classroom
The reward of seeing students develop and mature.
The challenge of finding meaningful learning situations both in and out of the classroom
Discussing, planning and working with stimulating colleagues
The fact that my workplace is full of life and energy every day and although it may at times be frustrating, it is never dull.

What areas of school development are you particularly interested in?

Developing ways of assessing work in our English-run courses so that we maintain an international profile whilst at the same time bench-marking the standard of the work students at VRG produce by having contacts with other schools both in Sweden and abroad.
Working with new teachers who are working in English in order to achieve the above.

To plan lessons – the approach – and try different methods to help students understand and see when they develop and improve based on feedback and our continual dialogue… How students learn!!

About kristylundstrom

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.
