My Profile

Professional Background

Most of my the time I worked as a TESOL teacher.


I'm constantly learning and I do think this is one of the most important things which happens to any form of life. Part of evolution, I guess. So, I try to keep remembering to notice that I'm learning something all the time, no matter it's something really important or just a drop in the huge ocean of experience. I'm being educated all the time. Just hope I can keep conscious of it till the moment to turn off the lights comes.

My Interests

Language, Culture, Music, Literature, everything which involves human creativity and good will.



I'm a Portuguese/Brazilian woman born before the man walked on the moon. I grew up listening to all kinds of music and reading most everything I could put my hands on. I love learning new things, talking to people, visiting different lands and learning about different cultures. I like language learning and teaching, too. Once I read somewhere that learning a new language is like seeing the world through a new pair of glasses and I couldn'd agree more with that.

All these things are in your tutorials, but I put them here as s kind of s learning shortcut.

  • Uploading Pictures. You have a picture on your computer. You want to put it onto a page you are editing. Remember where it is and what it is called on your computer. On your page, in edit mode, you name the file by whatever name you want to call it. Do not use a generic name like "My_picture" or it will; get easily mixed up on the WikiEd site. Best is to put your name in the file name you choose. Make sure the extension is one of the many Wiki can handle, like gif, png or jpg. Put it inside two sets of square brackets. At the beginning, type in the word image followed by a colon followed by your file name. Then save and that makes your page into publishing mode, and you have a web page again. The image name should be red, indicating that it has not been used already. Click on it and a page will appear that has easy instructions abut uploading the file from your computer. The image gets its own page. When you see it, go to the bottom of the page, click on your page name and there it will be. --Phil Bartle 05:32, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
  • If you have not seen it yet, I recommend that you look at the youtube video clip on Wikis. In WikiEd, as in the video, the most important buttons are edit and save. A third button, Link, is not quite the same on WikiEd. To make a sub page, in edit mode, you simply give it a name. put forward slashes around it, then two square brackets in front and after the result. When you save, the word will be in red. Click on it and it will tell you there is no such page. As soon as you start editing, the sub page is created. Another tip is to borrow from your Wiki neighbours. Browse around other User pages. If there is anything you like, just copy it and paste it in to your user page. Make any modification you need, and there you are. --Phil Bartle 03:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
