Teaching has always been a passion for me. My career in education began with my degree in Biology with focus in Education, which qualified me to teach both Primary and Secondary levels in Brazil. I have also taught English as an Additional Language to children and adults for 4 years. In England, I worked as a TA for one year before training as a teacher. In my placements as a trainee, I have fostered pupils' self-esteems, which allowed them to feel confident to participate, make mistakes and learn from them. I also value self-reflection, both for myself and for the children, which allows for a journey of improvement. I am excited about working with colleagues and parents in a collaborative manner! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, travelling, singing and meeting up with friends.
