I joined The British School of Beijing, Shunyi (BSB) in 2010 as a Physical Education (PE) teacher for both the secondary and primary schools. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dickinson College, USA. While an undergraduate, I studied a year abroad at Nottingham University, England. I later completed a post-graduate degree in Education from Montana State University, USA and hold a duel Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction and Educational Leadership, from Dallas Baptist University, USA.
I have lived and worked in China since 2000 moving back to Beijing after a one year assignment in Singapore. While living in Singapore I worked for the Overseas Family School, and previously worked for both the Shanghai American School and Livingston American School, Shanghai. At all three schools, I taught humanities and physical education and was the Livingston American School’s Athletic Director.
At BSB I am the Director of Sport and PE, with my main responsibilities, in addition to teaching, are coordinating and developing sports and PE for both the secondary and primary schools as well as overseeing BSB’s participation in ISAC, FOBISIA and ACAMIS. Furthermore, I coach various sports throughout the year.
I love anything to do with sport and fitness. In college I played American football, and am still an avid fan. I live in Shunyi with my wife and two daughters. My daughters both attend BSB’s Primary school, and as a parent I am amazed at the learning they have achieved and confidence grown since joining BSB.
