About teachers in Finland...

The last but not the final word about Finnish teachers and Finland educational system. 

How wonderful it must be to be so valued by your community as a teacher. I am a trained foreign language teacher and the comments about immigrants continuing with their own language is supported by world wide research. Well done Finland!

I love my job. I have been teaching since 1980 and I have seen a lot of changes. I have learned much from my peers and my students. My country needs clever and exciting people to teach the clever and exciting students we've got!
