Olá, tudo bem?

I'm Raquel and I'm from Porto Alegre, a city in south of Brazil. I'm graduated in Portuguese and English at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and I'm currently finishing my Master's deegre in Psycholinguistics at the same institution. I have been teaching Portuguese for speakers of other languages for five years, however, it's my first time teaching in the United States. I'm very excited and hope we learn a lot together.

For my free time, I like to spend time with friends, watch TV shows and play videogames. Here in Colorado Springs, I hope to have the chance to explore the amazing nature around us.
