Sanja Bogdanović

History teacher Sanja Bogdanović got her degree in history from the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade and her Master degree from the University of Illinois, Chicago, USA. Working as a teaching fellow at the University of Illinois, and later at the City College of Chicago, she conducted the practical exercises at which students conducted research projects and improved their literacy skills necessary for advancement in various academic fields. Besides her work at the university, Sanja volunteered in Chicago primary and secondary schools, organising a variety of activities and projects for students of different ages.

Using modern technology in her lessons, Sanja manages to make history come alive and shows to her students that this subject can be not only useful but fun as well.

In her free time Sanja likes reading, writing and enjoys riding her bike along the Belgrade rivers.

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

Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
