I'm Mrs. Athayde and I teach English Language Learners at the STEM Academy. I grew up in Brazil and experienced first hand the challenges immigrants face as they adapt to life in the US. There is nothing I love more than traveling the world and exploring different cultures and landscapes. Teaching English Language Learners makes me feel like I’m travelling the world on a daily basis. I enjoy learning about my students’ countries of origin, their cultures, and traditions. They challenge my ethnocentric views and inspire me to design meaningful lessons that engage and empower them as active members of our community.

Hello! I teach the first and second grade newcomer students. At the STEM we have a wonderful community of dual-language learners who speak over a dozen different languages.  My main goal is to help students and their families transition as smoothly as possible to their first American school experience.

Different cultures and languages have always interested me. My husband Franck and I met and married in France before moving, and working in Germany for several years. After a brief detour in Oregon, we settled in Massachusetts where we’ve been for the last 20 years.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with our three children, reading and traveling.
