She was a Theater’s teacher in social projects and has worked with children in risk situations, workers, younger and grand people. In 2005 she began her career as a professor, since that she has been working with the new performing arts teachers’ training at Brazilian universities.

She had many papers and books published in Brazil and others Latin-American countries about these subjects*. She wrote two books in an important Brazilian collection of Art & Education’s books. One of these is about children’s spectatorship experiences mediated by the school and the other one (in co-authorship with the artist and professor Maria Falkembach) about practices in Theater and Dance in the primary school. This last book was chosen in a Brazilian governmental program for libraries in the public schools, receiving a new edition (150.000 copies) in 2014 and had distributed to all the country. Recently, she wrote her first book to children, little autobiographical tales. A new book to teachers will be published in this current year, about the teaching of History of Performing Arts in the secondary schools.

She also coordinated several projects for training art’s teachers and co-edited some academic books in her career as art educator and professor in Brazil.
