I qualified as a teacher (PGCE) 14 years ago and since that time I have taught History and EAL to students in many different settings.
I have spent time teaching at schools in the UK as well as Brunei, Norway, Kenya and Japan. I am currently Head of EAL here at BSB Sanlitun. I really enjoy teaching children across the whole school.
I am married with two young children who both attend BSB Sanlitun. As a family we love exploring Beijing and China and trying the huge variety of food on offer. We love to visit the many parks here in Beijing with Ritan Park being our favourite.
What the students say
"You can always talk to Mrs Furtado if you have a problem - she’s really kind."
"She makes us laugh!"
