Miss. Thais Souza


Portuguese Teacher

Being part of BCB team is very enriching. Here teachers and students have the opportunity to develop multiple skills by always being challenged to deliver the best they can, respecting our multicultural environment and sharing great experiences. 

I gained my undergraduate degree in English and Portuguese Language and Literature at University of São Paulo. During college, I spent one semester in Canada studying English at the International Language Academy of Canada. After concluding my undergraduate degree, I took a specialization course in Psychopedagogy and I am currently taking my degree in Pedagogy. 

I have been working in Education since 2008. Before working at BCB, I worked in some public schools with children from Early Years to Elementary School. In these previous schools, I worked in administrative positions. The contact with children and great teachers made my desire for become a teacher grow. So, while I was working in this job, I became an English teacher at a language school and enjoyed teaching. In 2015, I started working at The British College of Brazil as Teacher Assistant at Reception and the following year, I accepted the position of Portuguese Teacher.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading and watch classical music concerts and ballet performances. I also like telling stories to my students, friends and family, especially mystery stories.
