I want to be a better teacher

  1. 1. I WANT TO BE A BETTER TEACHER
  2. 2. 1982 I was only 21 when I graduated in English in a small town inside São Paulo. At that time I really wanted to do a course of Translator and Interpreter, so I came to live in São Paulo. But the course was very expensive, then I started to work as a secretary.
  3. 3. 1983 While I tried to raise money to do the course I decided to do a course Cultura Inglesa school and studied there for 5 years.
  4. 4. 1984/2008 • For a long time I tried to work as a teacher but the pay was too low for beginners and I gave up. But I didn´t stop to study English. • I thought to myself: one day I´ll be an english teacher…
  5. 5. 2009 Only in 2009 I started working as a teacher and I had many difficulties in the begin. I was always asking me how I am teaching, if my teaching methods are satisfactory, how can I improve the way of teaching, etc.
  6. 6. 2011 In order to improve my teaching methods I did Specialization for Teachers of English Language by UNESP - Redefor
  7. 7. 2012 • Sometimes, after the Specialization Course, I felt frustrated because I would like to use more technologies in the classroom, but in the schools where I worked I couldn´t use it because there wasn´t equipments in conditions. • I was always thinking how my classes would be more interesting if I could use a projector or computers, etc.
  8. 8. 2013 • During this course (LEM – O ensino de Inglês nos dias atuais) I changed some concepts. When I heard the speech of Michele Gordon Active Learning with Oral Production in the classroom and Teacher Wagner Veillard – Reading and Writing, as well as the experiences we shared with others teachers, I realized that with creativity and little resources is possible teaching English in the public schools.
  9. 9. Nowadays... Of course, nowadays, I have some difficulties in the classroom, but the tips I learned in this course and the ideas we shared with each others, led me to questions: How can I use this tips in my classes? How can I do possible adaptations? How can I get the interest of my students?
  10. 10. 2014, 2015, 2016... Next year I'm sure that all experiences will contribute in my practices and I want to improve my fluency in English.
  11. 11. Thanks everyone!!! Merry Christmas and a great 2014!
