October 2021 

This month our Shout-Out honors National Teach Portuguese Week (Nov 1, 2021 to Nov 5, 2021). The NSE is thankful to all teachers who go above and beyond. This October Shout-Out goes to Profesor Cristiano Libório at Science Park High School in Newark, New Jersey! 


Mr. Garcia, a colleague, states that “Profesor Libório has been a Portuguese teacher of all levels (including International Baccalaureate I & II) at SPHS since 2006 and he is a co-sponsor of their Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica. He has coached boy’s soccer and volleyball and even organized fundraisers with the SHH such as a local Breast Cancer Walk and donations to Associated Humane Societies. He even won an International Contest that paid to take his students to Portugal! He consistently finds ways to engage his students to become lifelong learners and he is very involved in all aspects of the school and culture.”


Thank you, Profesor Libório, for everything you do for your students!
