Teaching assistant, Key stage 2 teacher

After relocating to the Algarve, following a 15 year stint in the UK, Catarina initially took gained qualification in tourism and beauty therapy, before realising that her true calling and main love has always navigated towards children. As a highly motivated individual with a heart full of passion and patience, she has previously worked as a babysitter, an Au pair, and a childminder in private creches and 5* hotels. Joining AIS a year ago as a teaching assistant has been a rewarding experience; being able to provide tender guidance to her students has been heartwarming and incredibly fulfilling! She is proud to be part of the team in a beautiful home of education!
