• Serbian Language and Literature teacher

Marina Kuzmanović

A Serbian Language and Literature teacher, Marina Kuzmanović, completed her bachelor’s and Master’s studies at the University of Belgrade’s Faculty of Philology, Department of Serbian Literature. Her areas of expertise include the novels of Rastko Petrović, avant-garde literature, modernist novel theories, and modern morphology and syntax.

She has years of experience working as a teacher in primary school. Students, their problems and dilemmas motivated her to co-design a project sovicabezpuskica.com with her colleagues, and turn to an innovative learning method. As a teacher in Savremena Gimnazija, she wants to further improve modern, student-oriented approaches to teaching. She emphasises functional knowledge of language and literature as one of the main objectives of her classes. In addition, she believes that it is important to cultivate a reading habit through adequate motivation, and help students develop their writing and speaking skills, as well as raise their awareness of culture and art.

She is interested in other areas besides literature and language, particularly the field of digital marketing and personal development and growth. Her hobbies include writing, singing and functional training.

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
