The Jandaíra Bee is a species found with great frequency in the Caatinga Potiguar. It contributes to the pollination of various fruits and seeds, such as cashew. It gave rise to the name of the municipality about 120 kilometers from the capital of Rio Grande do Norte. And it is from the city of Jandaíra, in the Region of Mato Grande, that the character of this story will be told.
Moisés Felipe de Lima is 29 years old and on February 13, 2020 he completed the Higher Education Degree in Mathematics in the Distance Learning modality. He attended educational activities and took tests at the Macau Support Center. “My access to the polo was always a tiring trip, it was a one-hour drive to get there,” he recalls with emotion.
Moisés recalls that he often received help from the polo team, even when he had no money to make a meal. According to him, this was the great differential that kept him active in the Course. And persistence yielded a great result: at the Graduation Ceremony he was surprised by the Academic Award, an honor given to undergraduate students with outstanding performance during their training at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN).
“I never imagined that, one day, I could be a laureate, it was something magical, it will stay in my memory forever. But this honor is due, in part, to the excellent body of teachers of Distance Education at UFRN. I dedicate my success to them, ”said Moses in a thankful tone.
Son of a seamstress mother, Moisés Lima is the first of three brothers to earn a Higher Education diploma. And recently, another personal and professional victory was registered: the approval of the result of a public contest promoted by the Parazinho City Hall, also in the Mato Grande Region. He was in the first place among the candidates for mathematics teacher.
According to the future teacher, this will be the first job in the area that he chose to act. He recognizes the fundamental role of Distance Education in this trajectory: “Distance education gave me everything I have today, I am grateful to UFRN for allowing me to have a graduation and now a job”. When he thinks about the professional future, Moisés shows himself determined: “I want to contribute to education in this region of the State and seek, more and more, training, because I understand that the teacher is an eternal student”.
