Alessandra De Campos
Student in Washington
When I was 3 I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I'm lucky because I've been able to fulfil this dream. I've taught Portuguese, English, Brazilian and Portuguese literature (my favorite subjects without a doubt), grammar, reading and writing (my second favorite) to people of different ages (children to adults) and in different contexts (public, private schools, companies, language schools). I love being in schools, working with/helping/learning from other people, and I'm grateful I've been able to do what I love. I'm proud to still be in love with learning after 45 years and lucky to be able to invest time in doing that.
Other things I'm happy to have in my life are my people, a dog, plenty of strong, bitter coffee, music, technology, and questions. Questions, questions, questions.
