I have been teaching English since 2001, and it is one of my greatest pleasures. I love being in the classroom with the students, because I am able to learn from them as much as I teach them. 


     Bárbara Duarte

I have always wanted to teach English, but never thought I could because I was always such a shy person! After years working with art and design (including some years with computer programing!), I decided to follow my dreams and Casa Thomas Jefferson took me in. I hope to keep teaching for many years to come!

         José Antônio
I am a teacher who loves teaching and learning. I have been doing this for 30 years and I learn all the time with my students and my colleagues. In class, I always like to innovate to make my students learn and explore their creative potential. I hope this new space becomes one more spot to allow creative to blossom. Looking forward to learning.
