Civic education teacher Ana Brkić got her Bachelor and Master degree in sociology at the Faculty of Philosophy, the University of Belgrade, and she kept broadening her knowledge though numerous workshops and professional development events thanks to which she became a civic education teacher. She used to teach in several Belgrade Grammar schools, and for years now she has been engaged with the topic of violence prevention. Ana conducted educational workshops for youth all over Serbia, and huge volunteer experience helped her understand better the society in which she lives so she can provide support for vulnerable social groups.

In Savremena Gimnazija, she encourages independent thinking and playfulness, builds the atmosphere of cooperation and openness for diversity,motivating students to take active relations towards society.

In her free time, she plays the guitar, sings, manually produces hoola hoops and enjoys inspirational conversations.

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
