I have been working in Brazil for 20 years as a teacher, materials designer, Cambridge English Language Assessment freelance speaker and speaking examiner, and consultant for publishers. I have taught in schools, language institutes and in companies, where I have developed a new concept of ELT in the workplace. I am also ALTE individual affiliate and iTDi Associate. Two words excite me: curiosity and creativity. I feel the need to know, explore, understand, learn, predict — in fact anything that may lead to a new way of thinking. Maybe that’s why I’m so passionate about teaching: because I can affect how students perceive the world around them. I believe I can ignite a spark of curiosity and help them develop their own creativity. I feel I can help them overcome fears, express themselves, initiate ideas, plans, actions and a desire for lifelong learning. I am also an enthusiastic runner and I love dogs.
