Scoopinho: Why did you come to PASB? Why did you choose Brazil?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I didn’t choose PASB, PASB chose me. Whilst in Canada, Mr. Bedard and I were at a teaching fair for interviews in schools abroad. Mr. Bedard got a job here at PASB and two years later, Dr. Johnston called me and asked if I would like an interview.
Scoopinho: What do you like most about Brazil?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I love all the friendly people! I also really enjoy the cultural side of Salvador, especially the music. I feel like this city is a great place to relax.
Scoopinho: What did you major in in college and why did you choose this major?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I chose to study history and music performance. I have been playing both the piano and the saxophone for a while, so I felt like music performance was an ideal major.
Scoopinho: Where did you go to college?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I went to college at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, which is ranked one of the best universities in the world and students here at PASB should consider going!
Scoopinho: From your experience living abroad in Brazil, would you choose to travel to another location if the opportunity was given to you?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I don’t know, it’s hard being away from home although I would love a job in France because I speak the language.
Scoopinho: What are the main differences from PASB to your old school in Canada?
Ms. O’Sullivan: Here in Brazil, my classes are way smaller than the ones I taught in Canada. PASB's students are 95% Brazilian, which is a big change from the students in Canada, since they represent many different nationalities.
Scoopinho: How long have you been teaching and how many schools have you worked in so far?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I have been teaching high school for eight years. I also taught English as a second language to adults but I taught piano since I was 13. PASB is my 5th school that I have worked in.
Scoopinho: Are there any other things you would like our readers to know about you?
Ms. O’Sullivan: I really enjoy being outdoors. I especially like biking and hiking, they both help me relax and feel calm.
