My name is Daniela "Ela" Strandberg. I have worked in Parga's school world since 2004 - first as a resource person, then as a student assistant and the last ten years as a class teacher and special class teacher.
The brain, learning and study techniques have long fascinated me and I love to immerse myself in these areas. I am passionate about finding alternative methods of learning.
In my opinion, schooling and schoolwork should be fun. There are enough things in life that are hard and boring. What we can do fun, we will do fun. Learning new things should be entertaining, exciting and interesting. I try to achieve that with this project!
One of my big interests is Escape Room. I have run my own Escape Room and arranged, among other things. Zombie Escape event. I have also arranged Escape the Classroom for my classes.
The teaching profession probably comes to me in a shared first place with panda nurses when it comes to dream jobs. Despite that, I left the teaching profession to create something I am really passionate about and did not have time for when I worked full time as a teacher.
I am 36 years old and the mother of seven-year-old Isa. During the summer of 2020, we moved from Finland to Sweden. We live in Umeå with my partner and our two dogs (11-year-old Niki and the puppy Ninja).
From August, I will write a book that will be published in 2022 by Bonnierförlagen Lära .
During the corona spring of 2020, YLE made a documentary "Ela and Isa at a distance" where you can follow our everyday life while society had closed down and I taught my students from home.
