At the moment I am working at the International School of Curitiba, in Brazil, as a Pre-kindergarten teacher.

It was a wonderful experience to be part of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Bristol. I have never learned so much in a school as I did there. The course was great and the tutors and staff were always so helpful – I miss Bristol and the time I spent there and really wish I could do it all over again.

After finishing the MEd Psychology of Education, I went to work as a key person at a Primary school in Bristol called Millpond Primary School. I learned a lot from the teachers and the students at Millpond and was also able to use what I had learned at the University. I worked there for a year and a half and then I decided it was time to go back home.

I left the UK and went back to Brazil at the end of 2011 and, as soon as I got here, had several Primary schools open their doors for me. I am certain that this only happened because of the experience I had acquired in the UK.

At the moment, I am working at the International School of Curitiba, in Brazil, as a Pre-kindergarten teacher. The school is amazing and I am very happy with everything that I have been able to accomplish so far.
