Tatjana Koluvija

In her many years of work in the LINK edu Alliance, Tatjana Koluvija stood out for the quality of the implementation of all work tasks, her commitment to educational work with students, mentoring work with other teachers, and professional communication with students' parents.

After completing her undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Philology of the University of Belgrade, at the Department of Serbian Language and Literature, Tatjana gained vast experience in working with students in primary and secondary schools, as well as in the international and national education systems.

She improved her professional skills by working at International School as a Global Perspectives and Serbian language teacher. Her talents for professional communication and mentoring were quickly recognised, which is why Tatjana soon became the Assistant Head of Academics at International School, as well as the Coordinator for Cooperation with Parents.

Thanks to her participation in numerous projects, Tatjana particularly stood out in the implementation of numerous innovations in teaching at International School, some of them being the eTwinning quality label for the "Mindfulness in Teaching" project, the introduction of the "Parents Teach" project with the aim of involving parents in school life, well-attended lectures at the Institute for Contemporary Education, but also the excellent results of her students at the Cambridge International final exams.

Thanks to her professional competencies, excellent knowledge of different educational systems, professional attitude, empathy, and dedication to working with students, Tatjana is trying to further improve the quality of work at Savremena Gimnazija.

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.
