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.
