About Me

I am originally from Brazil, where I started teaching at a young age. After moving to the United States in 2001, I continued to pursue my passion for teaching. I earned my master's degree in 2005, and I have taught at several adult education programs and community colleges in the Bay Area.

I have been a faculty member of De Anza since 2008, and I love the school and its diverse student body. I teach a variety of classes from low-intermediate to advanced ESL. I very much enjoy getting to know my students and helping them reach their academic goals and improve their language skills.

See you in one of my classes!
