To the IES Solna family, 

My name is Karl Liljas and I am the newly appointed Academic Manager at IES Solna. It is with great anticipation that I write this short presentation of myself; being part of the team that builds a new school from scratch comes with responsibilities but also with a great sense of pride. Originally from Uppsala, I have spent a great deal of my life abroad; both in the US and Germany and most recently in the UK where I taught in both state and private schools. In 2018 I settled with my wife and (now) two daughters in Södermalm where I began teaching History and Swedish at IEGS as a förstelärare. Currently I am doing a secondment in a project at Medioteket, Stockholm stad. I look forward to sharing my great passion for teaching with the entire IES Solna family: students, colleagues and guardians. I hope to see you all in August, if not before.
