This page is dedicated to discuss learning, teaching and managing education through my experiences in Finland.
My name is Lais Oliveira Leite, I’m Brazilian, Education Psychologist, and I love to travel. I came to Finland in 2016 for the Master Programme in Primary Education at the University of Eastern Finland and I am still in the middle of (k)nowhere – as they call it here.
I have visited different types of Finnish schools, in rural and urban areas.

We are offering personalized online/hybrid workshops about the Education system in Finland and related topics.
