We can now look back upon a fantastic summer holiday with sunshine, warmth and all that a true summer should have.
Students and staff are back in place and we all been energized through the fantastic summer. A warm welcome back to students, staff, parents and an especially warm welcome to all new students, to all new parents and to all new staff.
Our teachers are well-prepared to grant our students knowledge, inspiration and the tools they need to become ‘global winners’.
IES belongs to one of Sweden’s most experienced free-school groups, having achieved fantastic merits and we are extremely proud of our school in Eskilstuna.
We have been successful in recruiting engaged and well-trained teachers. We have also been given approval by the head office to appoint first teachers. We are allowed one first teacher per 110 students. Since we are Sweden’s biggest school, it adds up to twelve highly competent first teachers.
They will each be working with a development area to further develop the quality of the school.
The first teachers are:
Ms. Truedsson, development area Mathematics years 4-6
Ms. Önnebro. development area Science years 4-6
Mrs Zentio, development area Language Learning years 1-3
Mrs Enavall, development area Mathematics years 1-3
Mrs Bäckström, development area Sustainable Development, Green Flag
Mr Forsberg, development area Students with Special Needs, years 1-5
Mrs Pousette, development area Swedish as a Second Language years 1-9
Mrs M. Holmgren, development area Modern Languages
Mr Bäckryd, development area Mentorship
Mr Groth, development area Assessment
Mrs Järleskog, development area Cooperation between Recreation and School
Ms Hansson, development area Reading Development years 7-9
We are also very glad to have an Academic Coordinator at Primary/Junior School, Mr. Stradnick.
Mr. Stradnick will also be assisting in the support and development of our teachers as he has both training and wide experience in the field.
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I look forward to the coming school year.
