In our endeavor to understand the current reality of the Icelandic education systems and the position of teachers in it, we decided to interview various stakeholders. This is a first interview with a kindergarten teacher located in a small fishing village in the north of Iceland (Dalvík). Magnús Hilmar Felixson shares a personal story of becoming a teacher, being a teacher and his strong visions for necessary, systemic changes within the Icelandic kindergarten system.
