Born 1969, Finland, Åland
teacher, author, illustrator, teaching material
I live in the small Åland
Island, a self-depended island belonging to Finland and located between Sweden and Finland. This Island has only 28300 people and is therefore
a very peaceful place.
My work in school
I have been working as a
teacher in a public school since 2001 with children in age ten to twelve. The children’s
self-esteem has always been important for me. I can see the
connection between good school results/good life quality and a strong self-esteem.
Therefore I have been creating schoolprograms
in Life-knowledge (translate from “Livskunskap”). Insidan (www.insidan.eu) is still creating new
programs for schools. I am very interested in
how people can be “the better self”. I also believe that we need to accept and
find the unique self and that we also have inner power that we can use. All we
need to do is to believe in ourselves. That’s easier if you know who you are
and how you works together with others. To teach some everyday-physiology for
children is a good investment.
My writing and illustrating:
I have always liked to write, paint and draw and
together with my interest in personal growth my two characters
was born - The duck AnneAnka and the anteater Artur.
