New technologies in the language school “My School” in Obrenovac
Mirjana Tešić is an English language teacher who had been working in Obrenovac Grammar School until 1999, when she left her job in the public service to try her hand at entrepreneurship. Studio “My School” was initially set in a one-bedroom apartment in Obrenovac and then developed into four classrooms at different locations by 2014.
The floods in May 2014 interrupted the school work as the classrooms were flooded and all basic assets - computers, blackboards, furniture and teaching materials destroyed.
The European Union donated two interactive whiteboards, two projectors and two computers to “My School” which enabled continuation of the work and promotion of foreign language learning both for children and adults.
“The two smart boards donated by the EU have largely contributed to the magic of “My School”. Our students are enchanted with new technologies and thus more motivated to learn. We are truly appreciative of the aid which helped us through hard times of disastrous floods in our country,“ Mirjana Tešić said.
