Hello and thanks for visiting. My name’s Alessandra and I’m an educator. I’ve taught English as a Foreign Language, designed resources and curriculum for courses, and coached teachers in Brazil for over 20 years. I’ve also worked as an examiner for the State University of Campinas and Cambridge English Language Assessment. I have a BA in Languages and Literature from the University of Campinas and a Master’s in Education Policy from the University of Washington (UW), where I also support a research team in studies on Washington’s Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (TPEP). I’m currently teaching two courses to undergraduate students at UW (Teaching English Language Learners and Current Topics in K-12 Education) and doing my PhD in Educational Leadership, Policy and Organizations. My interests are public education, teacher learning, and the assessment of/for teaching.
