Antonio Ramirez

U.S. Certified Teacher


Hello, everybody. I am thrilled to be a lab expert here in Brazil. I am from Hammond, Indiana (near Chicago). I received my bachelor's degree from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and my master's degree in Education from Calumet College of St. Joseph in Whiting, Indiana.

With this education I have been able to fulfill my two passions in life: traveling and teaching. That is why I love my career as an international teacher. I've been teaching for about 6 years now. I have taught in the USA, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, and Kazakhstan. Living in different places has opened my mind in so many ways, and I love to share all of my experiences.

My Interests are:

  • Traveling
  • Exploring and hiking
  • Bike riding
  • Beaches
  • Volleyball
  • Art museums
  • Street Art
  • Live music


Fabio Paiva Reis

Teaching Assistant


My name is Fabio Reis and I am the Teacher Assistant at WAY Brasil - Belo Horizonte. I was born in Vitória, Espírito Santo, and have lived in São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Braga, Portugal. I’m a Doctor in History and I teach History and English since 2008, on and off.

I got a degree in History from the Federal University of Espírito Santo in 2008 and moved to São Paulo in 2009, where I started working as an English teacher and also I got a Master's degree in Social History at the Pontifical Catholic University. After that, I moved to Portugal, to get a Doctor’s degree and continue my research at the University of Minho. In 2013, back in São Paulo, I worked as an English teacher again and also as a researcher and writer, creating and updating professional coaching courses in Portuguese and English. In 2016 I published a novel (Kiss me in Barcelona) and launched a History project (the Spirito Sancto website). In the following year I worked as a substitute teacher at the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology and, in the beginning of 2018, I was invited to join the WAY Brasil team at Marista Dom Silvério.

Now, I live in Minas Gerais with my beautiful wife and our cats: Jade, Mimi and Kitty. I’m loving to help students develop their projects, get their diplomas and make their dreams come true.
