Pre-Nursery Seahorses Class Teacher

I have a passion for teaching children in their Early Years. The excitement they show and their enthusiasm for learning makes every day a day full of wonder. It is fantastic to facilitate a passion for learning in children that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

I am originally from Brighton, UK but love travelling, and have lived in Germany, Spain, Oman and China.

Prior to my teaching career, I completed a degree in Government. I have many years’ experience at all levels of Early Years – at PDO School in Muscat, Oman, BSB Shunyi
and at BSB Sanlitun. As well as classroom experience, I have qualifications in both English as an Additional Language and Special Educational Needs.

I joined BSB Sanlitun in August 2014 teaching Primary EAL. In August 2015, I spent a term as the Reception Whales class teacher before moving to the Early Years building as the Pre-Nursery Seahorses teacher.

I have three children who all attend the British School of Beijing at the Shunyi Secondary Campus, which they thoroughly enjoy.

My main hobby is music, and I love playing the cello. As a family we enjoy travelling during our holidays and experiencing new cultures and cuisines.
