Augusta (she/her) is the assistant in Sunflower (preschool-kindergarten).

In 2012 Augusta moved from Brazil to Washougal, WA, where she currently lives with her husband Tom, their son Owen (who is a student in Puddletown Elementary), and their two cats Nutella and Lightning. Augusta graduated in business administration many moons ago and worked in accounting, fashion, and the public sector. In 2020 Augusta earned her Master’s degree in teaching and recently completed her Montessori teaching certification. Working in a school like Puddletown brings a smile to her face every morning. Other reasons to smile are traveling, reading, watching movies, listening to music, dancing, spending time with her family, meditating, and learning languages. Besides her native Portuguese, Augusta speaks English, Spanish, French, and Italian.
