Anna has spent her career working in in a variety of schools. Before relocating to Shanghai, she spent seven years in a Swedish middle school where she was teaching Swedish, Swedish to immigrants and English. Besides working as a lead teacher, Anna has always thrived on working with various school related projects, especially in the field of internationalism. This has led to her training school ambassadors for the EU on behalf of the Swedish Council for Higher Education, working with the UN in reality-based role plays, and travelling to China with the Atlas Project. Anna even created a new school subject, which turned into a published book, on the importance of critical thinking in the digital era, co-authored with a professor at the University of Stockholm..
Anna comes from a small fishing village on the west coast of Sweden, yet she does not like water! However, she does enjoy sailing, particularly as it allows her family to spend time close together. Travelling has always played a large role in Anna’s life and she has visited many remote parts of the world. More than ten years ago, before having a husband and children, Ashe spent six months in the province of Guizhou, exploring the country and working as an English teacher. These days, however, she prefers to travel in a bit more comfort and style.
