“Art is too important not to share” -Romero Britto
Why I Teach:
Art has always been my passion. To be able to share this God given gift seems only natural for me.
Education and Training:
I got an Art Education degree from the Universidade de Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil and a Master’s in Art Education from the University of Georgia
Where I have lived:
I was born in New Jersey and grew up back and forth to Brazil living in the beautiful cities of Rio de Janeiro, the Amazon jungle and busy Sao Paul. After I got married, I moved to Recife the northeastern part of Brazil with gorgeous beaches.
My Professional Experience:
My first job was at a Catholic School: Colegio Sao Joao in Recife. Later I started working for the American School of Recife as an Art teacher and ESL teacher where I retired from in 2017.
I am married to Alberto for 41 years. I have one son who is a pilot. He has a lovely family. I have a very active and adorable eight year old grandson.
Something you might not know about me:
I’ve been living in Texas for over a year. I can’t wait to go out hiking; my second passion.
My prayer for my students:
O, great Creator
Guide my hand
Open my heart
Quiet my mind
Allow your inspiration to flow to and through me
Make me your instrument for creativity.
