Mr Emil Mattsson

My name is Mr Mattsson, I am 25 years old and moved to Karlstad from Sweden’s west coast in 2009. Before ending up at Karlstad University, I had a short career in journalism but changed direction leading me to where I am today. In my class (teaching physical education and health and history) I hope to motivate students to take responsibility for their own progress while enjoying the educational journey.

Outside of school, I am an avid sports fan, with a particular fondness for football. I’m currently the head coach of a football team in Värmland, which is a role I relish. Almost every summer, I travel around Europe to watch football, and this summer the FIFA World Cup in Russia is the big event.
