Professional Background

I studied Computer Science in college and was an IT professional in Brazil. When I moved to the U.S., I switched careers and became a teacher in a pre-school because I have always been passionate about early childhood development and education. I have about eight years’ experience teaching at various pre-schools. In addition, I was a stay at home parent for about 7 years.

Favorite Teaching Moment

The moments when you don't even know what you do are making a lifelong difference! I have a few students who have found me years later to tell me how a little thing I said or did made a lasting impact on them and helped shape their future. We all have the chance to do this daily!

Favorite Food

Favorite Activity Outside of School
