Work History

Teaching Portuguese to foreigners, mostly to missionary students.  I am self-employed, and I have been teaching since 1984. I have taught more than 500 students who successfully live and work in the mission fields where European Portuguese is spoken.  These include:  Portugal, Guine-Bissau, Angola, Cabo Verde and Mozambique

Personal History

I have taught Portuguese to some of the Safari Insight Mission Team people.  I love mission work in general and all over the world, and I believe that not only missions, but also companies and individuals can make a difference. Since I have also taught missionaries of other missions who live and work in Mozambique I know the need of all that Insight Agents of Change stands for.  I know personally Al and Velma Corson, as well as Shawn Gardner and his wife. I also believe in their point of view to their work in Mozambique.
