• Serbian language and literature teacher

Vanja Šimpraga

Vanja Šimpraga holds the title of a professor of Serbian language and literature, which she obtained from the Faculty of Philology at the University of Belgrade. Her degree is equivalent to a master's degree in the Bologna system of education. She studied at the Department of Serbian Language and Literature (group 01). She has shown an interest in proofreading even during her studies, and she has been successfully pursuing that path for the past fifteen years. In her free time, she spends time with her two-year-old daughter and enjoys reading, travelling, and taking walks. At Savremena Gimnazija, she strives to impart her love of reading to her students, as well as to teach them proper written and oral expression.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
