Hi! I’m an EFL teacher from Recife, Brazil and I am very passionate about teaching. I think education is the key to solving many of the problems in today’s world and became a teacher because I truly believe teachers can make a difference in students’ lives – call me a romantic if you want, but I do – and I take teaching very seriously.
Besides teaching my other passions are books (am an obsessive reader), music (all kinds, but am really attached to 80’s rock), art and most of all my two kids. I have recently discovered the wonderful world of Web 2.0 and blogs and what it can do for a teacher’s professional development. And after reading many blogs , I realized that blogging is a powerful tool for professional development, not only for the one who reads but also for the writer. And I felt the urge to try and give something back to the blogging world too.
Here I plan to write about things, ideas and questions that go through my mind when I am teaching, because I teach. I plan to share activities I come up with and I think my PLN might enjoy… Let’s see how it goes. Because this blog is a box of chocolate for me: you never know what you’re going to get!
