About Rayssa

Hello! My name is Rayssa, I'm a Biology and Sciences Teacher, but I also teach english as a second language for Middle Schoolers. I have studied at UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) in Brazil and at the University of Bristol (UK).  Now I have been teaching Sciences / ESL in Brazil, in a bilingual school in Rio de Janeiro, using PBL - Project based learning model. Basically my way of teaching involves real world issues, where students learn how to use scientific knowledge to understand our decisions as a society and solve problems. Students are invited to get a close look into the scientific aspects of our day-by-day lives, in dialogue with social, tecnological and environmental issues.
