Tereza has taught classes at several educational institutions in Brazil and was a design jury for 2018 Young Guns (The One Club for Creativity).

As part of her interest in combining writing with her graphic design practice, she participated in the Design Writing and Research Summer Intensive [2015] at the School of Visual Arts in New York, a two-week residency program devoted to research and writing about design. In 2020, she founded Clube do Livro do Design, a virtual book club and now a publishing house devoted to broadening the range of design texts available in Portuguese.


She has also been involved with teaching Graphic Design. She co-founded A Escola Livre [2014–2018], an experimental school of graphic design that aimed to ignite a dialogue on new ways of practicing and teaching design.
