I initially trained as a Teacher of English back in 1990 and worked for a year as a teacher in Buenos Aires before moving to Portugal. I retrained as an English teacher by taking my CELTA at IH Lisbon in 2009 and have been working at IH Braga ever since. Meanwhile, I have done some more training with IH, like the Advanced Methodology Course and the Young Learners and Teenagers specialisation course.

    I find that it’s the variety of what we do that engages me the most: students of different ages, with different motivations, different personalities… Every day is unique and there’s so much that we share that the sky is the limit.

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. My sons are young adults already, but I still enjoy helping them out in everything I can. One of them has become a teacher of English so we sometimes plan classes together—I provide the experience, he brings a fresh angle on things.
