Katherine Jara – Online Teacher from Brazil

We have an energetic show today with Katherine Jara and she will talk about online learning, a topic that is very timely with the surge of virtual schooling currently happening all over the world.  She has 10 years of experience working as an English teacher and being a workshop presenter in 3 national and international English as a Second Language (ESL) conferences in Brazil. She is proven to be a creative, enthusiastic and proactive professional of the area and as evidenced by our interview, she is a very engaging teacher of young kids.  After she graduated in English Pedagogy with a Major in Education, she started teaching the language to teens and adults at language schools.  In 2012, she decided to move to Brazil where she started her journey as a Young Learner teacher, but it was in 2017 that Katherine found the enjoyment of being an Online Teacher for toddlers and kids.  Teaching Spanish and English online has given her the opportunity to know kids from all over the world and to study, adapt and apply classroom activities to the online environment. She co-authored a free downloadable ebook entitled “A Guide to Start Teaching Online” and conducts workshops for teachers called “Lights, Camera, Teach Kids!”. She has a lot of things to teach us – how to use visuals to attract the kids’ attention, how to improve how you present yourself in front of the screen, how to deal with kids’ short attention span and she demonstrates the games that she usually plays with kids during lessons.
