Mrs. De Souza

Hello everyone! My name is Stefania De Souza Favareto and I am very happy to be part of your child's life this year. I was born and raised in Brazil and started my teaching career there. I moved to the United States in 2016 to be closer to my family and love being part of the amazing Brazilian community of Long Branch. 

I graduated from State University of Campinas (Unicamp) in Brazil and I am currently enrolled in the Master's of Education program at Monmouth University. Teaching is my passion and I believe that school is a place where every child should feel loved, safe and comfortable. 

In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband and spending time with my parents. I love trying new kinds of food, and being outdoors, especially hiking. I also love learning new things, so I am always engaging myself with new opportunities.
