I am a Portuguese Primary and Preparatory teacher since 2009 and I hold a Primary Teaching degree and a Masters of Primary and Preparatory Teaching in Math, Science, Portuguese, History and Geography.
Since 2015, I have been teaching History and Geography of Portugal at PaRK International School and I am a Teach Coach, since 2017.
I follow a student-centered pedagogy, based on project based learning, flipped classroom and integrate technology in classroom naturally and effectively.
Most of my History projects use Minecraft as a learning tool so in this blog you’ll have different Minecraft approaches of Portuguese History.
In 2016 I was honoured to participate as a speaker for two projects, with my colleagues, at ECIS Annual Educators Conference – Cultivating Curiosity (Copenhagen, Denmark).
In 2017 I was recognised as a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIEE) and in 2018 as a Minecraft Global Mentor.
In 2018 I was distinguished as one of the ten finalists of the Global Teacher Prize Portugal.
