About Leonardo Telles

I am a firm believer in that you cannot be proactively learning if you are not having fun. I strive to make lessons fun, coherent, and easy for all ages to understand, because seeing that "aha!" moment in my students eyes, makes them want to learn even more which in turn make me want to be a better educator.
