I am an intermediate and secondary school techer of physics and chemistry and have always had a particular interest in generating enthusiasm in students for learning science.

I´ve been coordenating the chemistry club in my school, for about five years now, where I´ve worked with children from 5th through ninth grade levels.

It is very important to me to comemorate this 2011 Chemistry Year; to give back to the science that has fascinated me, all my life and to share with youngsters this passion, and maybe, captivate some of them to its study.
