Please meet one more of our primary school teachers

I am taking the opportunity to introduce one more of our teachers, who will be teaching in primary school, Ms Lindahl. We look forward to having you in our team. 

Hej!

Jag heter Camilla Lindahl och kommer härifrån Värmdö. Jag bor på Ingarö sedan 15 år tillbaka. Jag är nyexaminerad F-3 lärare. Jag har sedan 2001 arbetat som barnskötare och sedan 2018 arbetat som ridlärare på Siggesta. Jag har två barn och en sambo. Mitt största intresse är hästar vilket jag delar med dottern. Som lärare är min största vision att se alla elever och deras styrkor och att få stötta eleverna utifrån deras förutsättningar för att deras skolgång ska bli så bra som möjligt. Jag älskar att läsa för eleverna och att få eleverna intresserade av böckers magi! Jag ser fram emot att träffa er allihopa och jag hoppas ni får en fortsatt fin sommar tills dess!

A warm welcome to Sweden and IES Värmdö Ms McCarlie, our English teacher in year F-3. 

 

My name is Jade McCarlie and I have been working in education for 6 years, first gaining my teacher training qualification in England. I have experience in Primary and Early Childhood Education and have been using a holistic, play based approach to teaching for the last 3 years. So far I have worked in England and Thailand and I'm very much looking forward to living and working in Sweden. 

My position in the school will be English teacher (years F-3), where I hope to get to know the IES team and work closely with staff, students and families, creating an inspiring learning environment throughout the school.

Welcoming our "local" PE teacher to IES

Welcoming our "local" PE teacher to IES

Hello all students and guardians,

My name is Fredrik von Tell and I will work as a PE-teacher at IES Värmdö. I graduated from Gymnastik- och Idrottshögskolan in 2011 and have since then been teaching at schools located both in Södertälje as well as Värmdö. For me, the most rewarding aspect of teaching is when I see my students succeed in something they never thought they were able to do.

I am originally from Nacka, but moved to Gustavsberg a couple of years ago. In my spare time I like to explore the outdoors, but I also enjoy playing American Football

I look forward to meeting you all!

A warm welcome to IES Värmdö's librarian

Dear students and guardians,

My name is Claire Shove and I will be the librarian at IES Värmdö. I am originally from New Zealand and have lived in Sweden for several years. I have previously worked at IES Nacka as a school assistant, and am very excited to return and help build up the new school in Gustavsberg, my own neighbourhood.

The library will be a part of the heart of IES Värmdö and will be integrated into the school's pedagogical work. I look forward to building an inviting and exciting environment for all students to develop their interest in books and language.

I am happy to introduce one more of our teachers in year 1-3. Welcome to our team of international staff, Ms Wahlström.

To all future students and guardians

My name is Susanna Wahlström and I am excited to start teaching grades one through three at IES Värmdö. This will be the first time I get to contribute to the establishing phase of a newly built school, which I see as an honor and a great opportunity!

I earned my teaching degree in 2002 at the University of Gävle and have since worked at several schools in the Stockholm area, most recently in Nacka. I have spent the majority of my career teaching primary school, grades 1–3, but I also have some experience working with students in grades 4–6. I was born and raised in Nyköping, where I also spent a few years working as a teacher. For the past seven years, I have lived in Värmdö with my family.

Teaching is an ideal fit for me as it offers both stimulating challenges as well as the reward of being a part of the students’ intellectual development.

I look forward to meeting you in the fall!

It is time to introduse another international teacher who will be joining us at IES Värmdö. We look forward to having you in the team, Ms Kipp.

My name is Sarah Kipp and I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been a teacher for 12 years both in Las Vegas, as well as in Dubai. Teaching is my passion and I strive to get to know each individual student in an effort to educate them in a more effective and holistic manner. Throughout my career, I have taught various grade levels and have experience in numerous subjects. This year I will be joining IES Varmdo in the Junior School as a Math, English and Science teacher.

I am extremely excited to be joining the new IES Varmdo team! I hope to bring my experience and passion for teaching as I collaborate with my fellow teachers. I also look forward to learning from IES and expanding my teaching pedagogy and philosophies. My motto has always been: "You are never too old to learn something new!"
