Extracurricular Activities and Accomplishments
In 2006, while working as an EFL teacher at Cultura Inglesa Higienópolis (SP), I was in charge of preparing a cast for the year at Cultura
Inglesa Drama Festival. Not only could I find some talented student-actors, but also I was able to set up a play by Wood Allen and they
could perform it in almost 12 students, winning 5 awards in all at the same festival. It was amazing and rewarding, a life-change experience
as English speakers for the whole cast and definitely a quantum step in my own career as a TEFL professional.
In 2015, I could meet Professor Sarah Meredith Livingston at USP and from such academic relationship, she was able to shed light to my
doubts as a professional, artist and educator. She taught me how to integrate skills since the world has been changing and so do classes,
students and ways of teaching and learning/acquiring in higher education mainly with mature students.
