Hi everyone!

Actually I'm pretty happy now  with my life in Sweden.
Here is my career story shortly:
I have a physicist engineer education from my country, which I had not been practised last 20 years... Here in Sweden is a big demand for teachers, so I decided to study pedagogy in order to become a licenced teacher in physics and math (which has allways been my passion).
Because of the free education and even one get some support (money) from the government... So it is just a matter of sitting down and read a bunch of thick books in order to sucseed in all examinations ;)
It took 1,5 year for me and since february I'm a legitimate teacher and in march got job in a high school, teaching math. I think this is one of the best jobs in the world... and not so bad paid either, here in Sweden ;)

If you are academician but hard to find a job... what do you say to become a teacher :)
