-CCBEU School Jan 2002-Dec-2005, Brazil
Working at CCBEU was very significant in my career as a teacher. I was responsible for a wide range of learning levels and age range. I participated in several workshops and seminars around the State of Sao Paulo, which contributed tremendously to the skills I have today as a teacher. At this institution I fully learned the importance of teamwork and shared information among tutors both methodologically and socially. The school also developed incentive yearly programs for teachers who wanted to contribute with new ideas to improve the school program. Follows two of my contributions:
-Class plan and chronogram, which adopted the use of recording cameras to help students improve their pronunciation skills by listening to themselves.
-Developed a Method-Proposal Class Plan that aimed to create a special pedagogical plan to assist hearing deficient students to learn English as a second language. I individually taught two students as such with very good results.
