“Coming back to normal school life after the pandemic it is more than ever obvious that teacher trainings are absolutely needed to meet student’s challenges and address their concerns.”                                                                                         
Ingo Beck stands up for a positive and supportive school climate, in which students and teachers get as much freedom as possible to find and realize their own aims. His prominent motto is “Everything will sort out fine”. Regarding school development, he let us know that his vision is to make the teaching profession more attractive by enhancing the work-life balance and further improving the collaboration of colleagues. Moreover, Ingo speaks up for the student interests. From his point of view, it is really important to revise curriculums so that they focus more on 21th century skills, for example, life and career skills as well as critical thinking.
