I have worked as a University teacher in Department of Education at Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius since autumn 2022. All this time I have been working as a teacher of early childhood education. I also act as a responsible teacher for the so-called open pathway (avoin väylä).


I am doing my PhD studies at the University of Jyväskylä. My research is a discourse analysis on teachers´ continuous professional learning in Finnish early childhood education and care. Other areas of research interest include adult students in early childhood teacher education and supervised curricular traineeship.


I teach e.g. early years pedagogy, development in early childhood and the basics of digital literacy. I am responsible for the bachelor thesis and part of the supervised curricular traineeships.
