Staff Profile: Paula Alderson

PAL Alderson Paula Secondary

Year 7 Leader and Science Teacher

After graduating with a first class BSc (hons) Chemistry degree, Paula was a research scientist firstly with ICI, then DuPont following a company buy out. She was in the polyester intermediates field specialising in Pure Terephthalic Acid. In 2002, she decided to embark on her teaching career and firmly says she has had absolutely no regrets in pursuing teaching as a career. She loves the mental stimulation that she needs for the role and which enables her to help others gain the knowledge they need to aid them on their career journey. She taught all specialities of Science and Maths in the North East of England for many years before moving to teach Chemistry and Biology at the British School in Baku, Azerbaijan. 

Shanghai is an amazing city and Paula chose to work in NAIS Pudong because she felt she needed to be in a school that was as organised as herself and that gave her the chance to teach students who are successful and ambitious. 

Paula moved to Shanghai with her husband and young son, who attends the pre-nursery in NAIS Pudong.
