Alfredo Pereira, World & Classical Languages teacher
I knew that I wanted to teach at Tampa Prep after I read online that they were switching to one-to-one iPad technology. I have been an enthusiastic ambassador of technology in the classroom since the Internet boom in the ‘90s when I was still living in Portugal. Utilizing iPads in the classroom embodies the three values that I promote to my students: structure, innovation and enthusiasm. Each day, I strive to create an environment in which students easily understand what we are working towards and what is expected while being enthusiastic and allowing them to express their enthusiasm as well. Outside of school, I really enjoy the Tampa Bay area fishing, beautiful beaches, amusement parks and relaxing lifestyle.
