Hi, my name is Celi! I moved to Japan from Brazil 28 years ago, raised 3 daughters who are all married now, and they gave me 5 amazing grandkids.
I have a bachelor's degree in teaching and my career was focused in teaching, starting with working in Brazil as a private and then public school teacher.
After coming to Japan, I was in charge of nursery through literacy education. Once the children were able to write and read they were passed to other teachers. Eventually I established a Brazilian school in which I was the principal as well as the main teacher, teaching children from nursery until 5th grade.
In recent years, I focused on private tutoring and volunteered at a licensed daycare in Canada.
As for languages, I am fluent in Portuguese, comprehend 50-70% of Spanish and am currently learning English. Verbal instructions should be ok, but I prefer written instructions in order to avoid any miscommunication.
I am currently enjoying my time with my grandkids and am looking forward to meeting your wonderful family as well!

Tengo tres hijas casadas y cinco nietos increíbles.
Soy una educadora universitaria completa y mi enfoque es la educación de los niños.

Establecí una escuela brasileña en Ibaraki, actuando como directora y maestra, para atender a los niños desde la guardería hasta el final de la educación básica.

Con respecto al idioma, hablo portugués con fluidez, entiendo el 50-70% del español, y estoy aprendiendo inglés.

Estoy disfrutando el tiempo con mis nietos mientras espero la oportunidad de conocer a tu increíble familia!

Celi is sweet and dedicated to childcare. She seemed very enthusiastic about about being a babysitter as she was very energetic and was taking very thorough notes throughout the interview. We think Celi would be a perfect addition to any CareFinder family.
