Since 1991, Gustavo Reis has been dedicating the vast majority of his professional career to becoming a better Math teacher. However, in his own words, if Math didn't exist, he would choose something else to teach.

Gustavo started teaching at the age of 16. He had the privilege to tell a little bit about his story during the 2012 edition of TEDxUnisinos. His presentation has become one of the most viewed talks from hundreds of TEDx events that took place in Brazil and has accumulated more than 350,000 views on YouTube (watch video). The Math school he founded in 2008, Espartato (formerly called Mathematica Et Cetera), focuses on an educational approach strongly based on building solid partnerships between teachers and students. Gustavo has a B.S. in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and a M.Sc. in Design from Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos (Unisinos), university where he is also an associate professor since early 2015.

In the few occasions when he is not teaching, recording in his video studio or connected to the Internet, Gustavo enjoys cooking, traveling and, especially, scuba diving. Among his personal highlights, he always points out the fact that he has a couple of older sisters and, as a consequence, will forever be "Mom's beloved baby boy".

In this talk, Gustavo, supported by scientific studies from the Design, Education, Communication and Psychology fields, presents the essential characteristics for the new millenium teacher.
