Who is Michaela Karlsson?

It's time to get to know all the teachers and staff who will meet the students at IES Norrtälje in the autumn! First up is administrator Michaela Karlsson, who has lived in Norrtälje with her partner for six months.


What did you do before you started at IES Norrtälje?
I have worked at IES Täby as an administrator for the past 7.5 years.

What is the best thing about your job?
The best thing about my job is that you get the best of both worlds. You get to work with administration and organization, while also being able to see the students develop.

What will you be responsible for in the autumn?
As an administrator, you do a bit of everything, but my main areas of responsibility are student admissions, manning the reception desk, and being helpful to everyone.

What is the best thing about working in a school?
The best thing is all the energy and joy that the students give you.

What are you most looking forward to when the school has opened?
I am looking forward to being a part of this new establishment where each individual has chosen to be a part of this journey. It’s exciting to see the school being built from scratch.

Do you have any pets?
I don't have any pets unfortunately, maybe soon!

What was your favourite subject in school?
My favourite subjects in school were physical education and social studies.

What do you do outside of work?
I stopped playing football a while ago, so since then I've been spending a lot of time with my partner and friends. I also try to get some exercise sometimes.
