He always tries his best to develop and deliver fun, inclusive and engaging lessons that keep students motivated to learn. He also believes that rich experiences in the languages of art, music, drama, dance and storytelling, help children find personal meaning in school learning. 

Felipe really enjoys living in Chengdu and travelling in China. He particularly likes the flavours of Sichuan cuisine. He spends his free time with his wife and his two dogs. He is also an avid reader, especially classics. He likes to ride bicycles, play video games, and swim.
