Teacher of the year 2018


Teacher of the year 2018 is Maria Bäck!

“We want to nominate Maria Bäck because she is always there for us cultural producer students. Maria keeps excellent track on both the classroom and the field, and she is also personal, human and understanding. She shows interest and is always there when we need her.”

“Maria is an extremely objective and pedagogical lecturer who you at the same time can approach with an open mind. She knows when as a lecturer you can be a friend and when to be an educator. In addition, she is understanding on a personal level.”

“She is super motivating and takes the needs of others into consideration. In addition, Maria is always available and tries to ease both school life and personal life as much as she can, she has an understanding of almost everything. Really a wonderful person I think would deserve this.”
