She’s currently working as a parent educator, counsellor and support teacher for students with special needs. Karima believes in an inclusive and holistic education, where every child shines at its own pace and time. She strongly advocates for an open and clear communication and for building bridges between parents and educators to allow each child to fully blossom to their best potential.
Teresa strongly believes that in order to fully retain information a person needs to experience it hands-on, so she constantly brings practical elements and different ways of experimenting the target language in the form of songs, games or projects. Due to her very own creative processes, she’s fully adaptable to the needs of the different children and is able to mould herself to the required style of learning of a particular child or group of children.
Teresa is also very passionate about teaching adults to overcome their own barriers when it comes to learning English. She’s often heard saying that “one of the biggest pleasures of teaching an adult to understand and then speak the English language is to see the surprise in their faces when they first realise that they can hold a basic conversation with someone else.”
Her experience with children from different cultures and abilities has brought her attention to a person-centred approached, she is able to customise her working environment to fit the individual. Working with children has given her the opportunity to communicate productively with care-givers and express her concerns and satisfactions.
She has worked with elder individuals with different backgrounds, ages and disabilities, which experience has allowed to be creative and use her own initiative. Her passion for psychology pushes her to broaden her skills in the field. Trial and error also allow her to analyse which method works best.
Ana claims that ever since she can remember she’s always had a colouring pencil or paintbrush in her hand. She loves creating and making something new and beautiful with her own hands, and then, smiling about it, she starts feeling good about her new creation.
Ana began sharing this passion with others from an early age but it was after moving to Portugal that she began working with children, teaching them how to have the confidence to create something pretty with their own hands. These are the most rewarding moments for her, when she knows that their creative juices have been at work in full force.
