Danny Haden

Year 4 Herons Class Teacher

My journey into teaching began whilst studying for an undergraduate degree in sociology, in Sheffield, England. As part of the course, I completed a work placement in a School Sports Partnership, which involved helping to deliver PE lessons in a range of schools. I thoroughly enjoyed working with children of all ages, although it was working with primary school children that I enjoyed most. This experience really ignited my passion for teaching and following my undergraduate degree, I completed a PGCE course at the University of Birmingham, in my home city.  

After successfully completing my PGCE, I started my first job in a primary school in a Birmingham suburb. Here I had a successful first year, and was made Computing Coordinator for the following year. Studying is a big passion of mine, and after completing my PGCE I had the option of returning to complete a Masters in Education, which I completed in 2015.

Another big passion of mine is travelling. As soon as I became a teacher, I began making plans for teaching overseas, as living abroad has been a life-long goal of mine. Having spent some time travelling around Thailand, I was eager to return to Asia, and China in particular has always seemed like such an interesting and vibrant place. After coming across the British School of Beijing, Sanlitun, I knew straight away that this was the school I would like to work in and I love living and working in Beijing.
