Brazilian Challenge Day 81: I got a job!

Yep, like many Brazilians, today I will work (for the first time) in Brazil. It’s not a full-time job, just one night a week, but it’s a start. I’ll be teaching a graduate business course at a university in Sao Paulo. In English. I just hope the students were also made aware that the course is in English.

I’ll finally have the opportunity to use my brain for tasks other than ones like trying to make a giraffe out of only red and brown playdough and contemplating the schemes on the most recent The Real Housewives of Orange County.

I’ll report back on my experience teaching a classroom full of Brazilians post class. Stay tune for “Brazilian Challenge Day 81: I got a job! – Part 2”

    Parabens! That’s awesome.

    And if the students don’t understand you should charge them for “teaching them English in a creative way through Business situations.”

    You are teaching at USP.

    I ama biologist and biochemist graduated from USP back in 1986, and after that I had my own lab at the Dept Microbiology for a few years. I left Brazil for good in 93

    USP will always have a special place in my heart, and I go there every year during my visits to see my family and friends

    Hope youbwill have a great ime teaching!

    forgot the exclamation point after USP! (I wrote from my iPad late at night, so I apologize…;-)

    I hope we are not getting ahead of ourselves in assuming you mean USP. Either way, it sounds fantastic so congratulations!

  11. sallybr says:

    Big oops…

    ok, no problem – you are right, it’ s better to keep it undisclosed, so you can share juicy bits about it here
