Holly Gilbert

Pre-Nursery Seashells Class Teacher

I have been teaching since 2011 and I hold a BEd (Hons) Early Years teaching degree. I started my teaching career in a primary school in Plymouth where I worked for 3 years as a class teacher in KS2 before moving to London in 2014.

I then took on the challenge of working in a primary school in South East London where I taught in Nursery and Reception but also in Years 4, 5 and 6. I am currently Assistant Headteacher, Phase Leader of Early Years and part time Nursery Teacher in a primary school in Bexley. Through my role as Assistant Headteacher and EYFS Phase Leader, I have developed many different skills, which I feel that I can bring to my new role at BSB Sanlitun. Now is the time for a new challenge and I am really looking forward to working with the pupils and staff at BSB Sanlitun in January 2018.

I am a very positive, outgoing and friendly person who loves to travel and discover new places. I also enjoy reading and shopping, as well as going swimming and walking with my husband. I love working as part of a team and am passionate about providing a positive and supportive learning environment for all pupils with all learning needs. I am so excited to be moving to Beijing and am very grateful for the opportunity that I have been given. I am really looking forward to exploring China, meeting new people and immersing myself in its culture.
