Miss. Rachael de-Bourne


Year 2 Teacher

My name is Rachael de-Bourne and I am a Year Two teacher at the British College of Brazil. I am delighted to be here in São Paulo, working at the British College of Brazil with the fantastic team on the Cidade Jardim Campus. I seek to teach an international curriculum, developing students as global citizens ready to explore the world. I am ambitious for the children that I teach to extend their academic and pastoral knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas.


I undertook my undergraduate degree at the University of East Anglia, gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies. My degree course granted me the opportunity to study at the University of Miami, so like the students that I teach I have experience of adapting to a different learning environment. I gained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Goldsmiths at the University of London in 2006 and have been teaching ever since!

My first teaching position was in London working for the state sector before moving to a private school to develop my teaching skills. From there I moved to Hong Kong where I was a founding member of staff at an expanding primary school. After spending three years working in Hong Kong I moved to Kobe in Japan where I remained until my move to South America. I have taught a variety of age groups and students with all different needs, abilities and languages.

Growing up in London, I love city life and São Paulo is a metropolis I am enjoying exploring.  I have one big aim in life and that is to see the world. By travelling to different places and meeting different people I grow as a person and develop knowledge and skills that are essential in my teaching. I also love any opportunity to be creative and enjoy making my own art and appreciating the works of others. I am excited to be in South America and look forward to exploring Brazil and the countries beyond.
