T@PT also has EXTRA PAGES which you can access at the upper central bar:
Home - It's very useful to quickly return to the latest post. 
Index - This very same page, which aims to function like a GPS so that you don't get lost in the midst of all these posts.
Timeline - As the free version of this app 'only' allows 150 events, this timeline won't register all my posts.
Cartoons and Funny Videos - Two separate pages about Humour. They're all mainly about Education or about the topics written and published on this blog.
Films & Short films - Film and short film suggestions for you to use in class.
Br/Am Traditions - This page is very useful as it has links to other websites about the British and American traditions, which go far beyond St. Valentine's Day and Hallowe'en.
PineTree Photo Gallery - In this page you can see lots of pictures about my school, which I dearly call PineTree. You have both a timeline of photos and pictures displayed by imgur. Memories not to forget!...
The Students' Corner - This is a space for students enrolled in 'Clube de Inglês',  in which they are free to choose the topics they want to write about. This section was started on October 24th, 2012.

Finally, on the right side bar, you can access both my...
... Twitter page;
... topics.

When writing in Portuguese, the author does NOT follow the rules of the 'Acordo Ortográfico 90' and the symbol on the right will follow the end of the posts.
