A Brazilian EFL teacher, explorer of the potential of technology integration into learning, be it in the classroom or for an entire organization. Enthusiast of any leadership, innovation-related topics, I started to dig into the possibilities of digital platforms years ago and have been avidly exploring it with educators, students, entrepreneurs ever since. I am a teacher trainer and Head of the Innovation and Technologies Department at a Binational Center in Brasilia, Casa Thomas Jefferson. I am a blogging fan (or addict!), enthusiastic Webhead, and a Google Certified Innovator.
Another spectrum of my interest is directed to viral professional development and teacher training. Education can only be transformational if the ones in the front end are willing to take the lead, so educators and leaders need to acquire the emerging 21st century literacies to be prepared to face the challenges of life and work. I share what learn through presentations, online sessions, blogging, consultancy and events.
I feel privileged to always be around people who inspire me, ignite my creative juices and let me share what I learn with my network. I believe that being an educator and trainer is to be in constant motion towards learning. And that’s what feeds my spirit and keeps it young.
In my spare time, I love being with friends, preferably, with an apron preparing some culinary alchemy. Reading and photography are also part of what gives me joy, but not more than my dear family, formed by a male team who make me laugh and live a wholehearted life!
