Published: 11 February 2014

Amanda Holmberg is studying to become a middle school teacher. She is 24 years old and comes from Luleå.

Hey there, who are you?

- I am a cheerful and spirited girl with a big appetite for life. I have lived in Luleå all my life and it felt right to start studying at the university in my hometown. I am a social girl that you really can't put your finger on because I am interested in lots of things in this life.

Why do you want to become a teacher?

- I did not really know what I wanted to do after high school, and this led me eventually to the teacher education program. During my childhood I was often told that I would fit as a teacher because I am good at explaining, like variety and are easy to reach out to people. When I was standing at a crossroads in life was the teacher education program a challenge I wanted to commit myself.

What's the most fun with your education?

- The really fun part of my training is the chance to get out into the schools and meet tomorrow's new faces. Getting educating children is an incredibly rewarding task that everyone should give a chance. The importance of the profession is my ultimate motivation. I like that our teachers continually reconnects to our future career as a teacher in teaching.

What does the students do in their spare time?

- It is difficult to say what is happening in your spare time then it might be easier to say what is not happening. There is plenty to do when the buses run around the clock in local Lulea via the university and there are many nightlife both in food and nöjesväg. For those who are interested in health is one of all the city gym on campus. Coop Arena, Luleå energy arena and culture house, it is always something going on, whether it's sports you're looking for or want to sit down to a lovely musical. Lots of opportunities, as many personalities. Adventure is around the corner if you are willing to look for it!
