Gil Vicente School Staff

Meet our fantastic teachers. They all bring in something different. Together they make Gil Vicente Portuguese School a great place for the kids to come and learn Portuguese.

I enjoy teaching at the Portuguese school because I feel that it is important to continue with our language and culture. I enjoy sharing my love and passion about the Portuguese language and culture.
