Who is Izabella Ewertson?

It's time to get to know all the teachers and staff who will meet the students at IES Norrtälje in the autumn! Next up is F-3 class teacher Izabella Ewertson, who knows how to end the school day in the best way possible.


What did you do before you started at IES Norrtälje?
I have worked at various municipal schools, as well as IES Sigtuna.

What’s the best thing about your job?
The absolute best thing is having a valuable place in the students' lives and I feel honoured to follow their development.

What are you most looking forward to when the school has opened?
I have previously worked as a teacher at IES Sigtuna, where I was involved in the start-up of the school. It is fantastically fun and rewarding to be a part of something new, and I look forward to being involved in laying the foundation for IES Norrtälje.

Which one is your favourite song right now?
“För evigt” by Emilia Pantic.

Do you have any pets?
Unfortunately, not at the moment due to allergies in the family, but I love animals and hope to be able to have some again in the future.

What was your favourite subject in school?
Definitely Mathematics. I had a fantastic teacher in middle school who made the lessons fun, exciting and informative. I hope that I can also spark my students' interest in Mathematics!

Do you have any dreams for the future?
I would love to go to Vancouver with my family, rent a car and explore the nature there.

What do you do outside of work?
I spend a lot of time with my husband and our two children. Together we renovate our house, go out into the forest or socialize with our friends.

What do you do to peak the children's interest and desire to learn new things?
I usually vary my teaching methods and materials to find new ways to peak the students' interests. I also try to involve the students in influencing how they want the teaching to be.

What is your favourite memory with your students?
Oh, what a difficult question! There are so many wonderful memories, but one thing that has been special to me, and also to my former students, is that I used to play music when the school day was over and they were going to after-school care or going home. We danced together, and even if the day had been tough or challenging for us, the school day ended in a nice and fun way.
