Marija Janićijević

School Psychologist Marija Janićijević had a degree in psychology from the Faculty of Philosophy, the University of Belgrade.

Her focus and the study module was educational psychology. She sees active psychological and advisory engagement with children and youth as a major factor of prevention against mental disorders and the path towards mental well-being. During her undergraduate studies she worked with children who needed additional support. Besides, she participated in projects which struggled against stigma to people who have mental problems. Upon graduation, together with a colleague, she established and coordinated projects devoted to listening to, raising awareness of, guidance and advising of adolescents. She is an associate for education and entertainment of pre-school children in several state kindergartens in Belgrade. She provides guidance and advice for Systematic family therapy within the Association of Systematic Therapists. What she cherishes most while in the classroom is conversation, innovation, actively establishing connection between theory and praxis. She firmly believes that psychology and advisory support provide for a wide and open path towards healthy personality development.

She spends her free time with friends, she also likes walking and reading.

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
