Hi! I’m Joe and I have been working with I.H. Braga for about 15 years. I was born in the U.S. but moved to Canada when I was only 6 months old.  After graduating from the University of Winnipeg I moved to Portugal and have been living here ever since. I started teaching after completing my CELTA training course and since I joined IH Braga, I’ve completed the IH Certificate in Teaching Young Learners and the Cambridge DELTA. I’m also a speaking examiner for Cambridge Young Learner Exams, First, Advanced and the Business English Certificates.

    I love teaching and I really like finding out interesting things about my students.

    I’ve taught all ages and levels and have found that all are challenging and fun.

    Also, what makes teaching at I.H. Braga so enjoyable are my colleagues and the staff in the office.  There’s a great atmosphere in the school which leads to a fun working and learning environment. On a personal note, I’m married and have a 15 year old son called Tomas. I love sport, reading and travelling (when I can). However, what I especially like is to watch my son play football. In the staffroom I’m famous for all the crazy stories I tell, and the 80s music videos I watch on Youtube.
