About your e-Facilitator

Hi, everybody!

I’m Carla Arena, an EFL educator, explorer of the potential of technology integration into language learning. I started to dig into the possibilities of tech-applications some years ago and have been going on new cyber-journeys with my students ever since. I’ve been a teacher at Casa Thomas Jefferson for nine years. I’m passionate about education. If I cannot change the world, at least, I hope to make a difference in my students’ lives by taking them into the fantastic journey of learning another language with the help of web tools to enhance their English skills.

This online experience is certainly a thrilling one for me as I have the chance to share with you the possibilities the Internet offers to collaborate, learn, teach, share, network, and develop professionally.

I was born in Brasilia, but currently I’m living in Key West, Florida, for two years with my family. When I’m not in the professional spectrum, I’m having fun with my two little boys, Dudu (8) and Caio (5), and my husband. I love to travel, cook, read, take photos, meet people, have fun with friends, listen to music, sing for fun, and invent different kinds of activities against boredom.

How about you? What are the driving forces of your life?

My video message to you about this online experience we are about to start.
