Day 12 Teresina June 18, 2015

What a fantastic day this was!  We started by visiting more classrooms at Centro de Linguas, then we conducted a second teacher workshop for public school teachers.  June 18 Teacher Workshop 3June 18 Teacher workshop 2June 18 Teacher Workshop 4 June 18 Teacher Workshop 5

Joselia made sure that everyone knew it was my birthday, and in a moving gesture, gathered students and the visiting teachers to sing a special song in Portuguese for me.

In the evening, Joselia and the Centro de Linguas principal drove us to visit a unique program called Musica Para Todos, a free music school with practice rooms and performance spaces for economically disadvantaged students.  The principal led us into many rooms and urged us to try out the instruments.  Just before leaving, she interviewed us on camera about our impressions of the school and its opportunities.Brazil 2015 205Brazil 2015 208Brazil 2015 210Brazil 2015 207

The night was topped off with a farewell dinner and gathering at our favorite venue, Seu Boteca, where we danced to 80’s songs performed by CCL English teacher, Gildo Veloso and his band.
