My name is Milica Alice Vukadin, and I live in Europe, Serbia. I am a preschool teacher and an ESL teacher for very young learners.
I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, with an additional course program for English methodology for young learners. My biggest passions are environmental education and distance learning.
In my free time, I volunteer online with the Granny Cloud, where I have sessions with children from Greenland, and in my city, where I conduct a storytelling-based learning program for children coming from low-income communities.
I have launched my own English language school for children in 2021, elloquent.org. I also conduct teacher trainings and I hope to develop more professional development programs in the future.
My middle name is Alice, so don’t let that confuse you while you are going through my portfolio.
P.S. I became a board member of the national English teacher association in Serbia in 2020, and registered Alice in Methodologyland as a nonprofit organization in 2022!

The project was realized under the auspices of Save the Children. The project was presented in the
Belgrade Center for Human Rights. The project consisted of organizing an inclusive
ballet show with a girl with down syndrome. She was supported by another project
leader who is also a ballerina. The project had a charity rock concert and all of the
money raised through the ballet show and through the concert was donated to the preschool.
The third part of the project consisted of raising awareness about the problems
children with difficulties face through local radio, newspapers, and workshops and last but not least, organizing an inclusive rugby practice so that the participants can work on developing their motor skills in a motivating environment. Click here for the project presentation.
