Mr. Vieira

Here at SSS, my roles are EL curriculum coach, English/ESL teacher, and Japanese Club advisor.


This is my 21st year teaching students and teachers in multilingual education. I enjoy playing piano and gardening, but my main passion is teaching young people languages.


School is an extention of my family. My wife and I have five young children. We are new to North Carolina and SSS, but we are quickly making here our home.


I speak Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Kriolu, and English. I love communicating with people throughout the world. 


My students reach high expectations. They eliminate barriers or work through them. They inspire me.

Our class motto this year is the following: "Just because I can't do everything doesn't mean I won't do everything I can."
