Miss. Laysi Nobre


Portuguese Teacher

I hold a B.A. in Portuguese and English Language and Literature from the University of São Paulo (USP) and I am currently taking Pedagogy. I also took a creative writing course at Berkley University, while I was living in the United States. During the graduation, I had the opportunity to be involved in researches in Brazilian Literature and Literary Theory, fields that I am absolutely passionate about. 


My solid foundation in the Portuguese Area also came from previous work experience: I taught private Portuguese lessons for secondary and high
schools students, as I worked for the company GI (Grupo Integração, that works with COC and Objetivo schools). I also was an intern at the school Dante Alighieri, where I observed and learned how to teach Portuguese in an interdisciplinary perspective. 

I have been working for BCB since 2016 both in the English and now in the Portuguese curriculum which allows me to have a whole perspective on a child's education. BCB teaches me every day to live with different cultures and to continue pursuing a good education throughout Nord Anglia University Courses.  

On my free time, I enjoy reading, watching plays and operas and writing poetry. My favorite authors are Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Graciliano Ramos. As I was born in Alagoas, I love dancing forró, cooking typical foods from the Brazilian northeast culture and believe that differences constitute us. As a Portuguese teacher, I truly believe in the uniqueness of each child to make them find their own voice linguistically, personally and empower them. 

What students say:

" Miss Nobre is so funny!"

"You make me a better person, Miss Nobre."

"I love you!"
