Hello there,

Just a few words about myself. I graduated in Education and History (which I still love) at Cambridge University in 1990 and a year later completed an MA in Comparative Education at the London Institute of Education. On November 2nd I arrived back in Brazil and have been here ever since.I started teaching at Cultura In 1992 and have taught varied levels, been a Cambridge examiner, took the DELTA in 1999 and 4 years ago was invited to come to work for the Academic Department. Since 2005 I have been the Head of Teacher training. I love all issues concerning teacher training and development. My particular interests lie in group work, task-based learning and sociocultural theory (my PhD area of research). In my spare time I love looking after my son, but I also read a lot and really enjoy going to a play. I was in amateur dramatics during college and even directed a play - so anything theatrical is really welcome in my life.
