Science and Computer Science Teacher


"I've worked with Gigi Diane for more than ten years as both a teacher, and learning support assistant and most recently supporting me with the after school robotics program. Gigi Diane is one of the most hardworking, and dedicated teachers I know. Her strong commitment to professional development is driven by her desire to make education accessible for every student, whatever their learning style or learning needs may be."


IB Language A: Literature Portuguese Tutor 

"Gigi Diane was of great help supervising the work  I carried out supporting Brazilian students following the IB program. For such students, it is always very challenging to meet all the deadlines and live up to the expectations. So, having an attentive and extremely competent IB SSST Language A: Supervisor such  as Gigi Diane was indispensable to my work."
