Fernanda Silmara

Nursery Teacher

I have worked at The British College of Brazil since 2013 and what I love about this school is the sense of community, one that respects and celebrates the different cultures and backgrounds and, therefore, nurtures a safe and happy environment not just for the children but also for parents and staff.

My academic and professional backgrounds are predominantly based in education. I gained my degree in Pedagogy in 2005 at the Federal University of Sao Carlos – Brazil. After graduating I moved to the United States to study English. When I returned to Brazil almost two years later, I accepted the position as a teaching assistant in an international school in Sao Paulo. The three years I spent there were extremely rewarding and fuelled my ambition to become a teacher. It was when I accepted the position as a Nursery teacher in an international school in Cairo, where I worked for two years. When I returned in 2013, I took the decision to take up a Pre-Nursery teacher position here at The British College of Brazil as I wanted to continue developing and challenging my skills and continue teaching in an international setting. It was when I pursued my PGCEi (International) at the University of Nottingham. Since then I have also taught both Nursery and Reception class here at BCB.

Although teaching is what I spend most of my time doing, when I am not teaching I spend my time with my family. I have a young daughter and nothing makes me happier than spending my free time showing her how many great things there are out there, such as different places and people to meet; books, songs and movies to explore; different food to taste, etc.
