John Brophy

Year 3 Teacher

Following a number of years working as a Youth & Community worker, Educational project leader and as a Residential Social worker, I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2010, obtaining and MA honours in Sociology.

I then spent a year teaching English to adults and worked on investigating and reporting on issues concerning rights to education for students in the Palestinian Territories. After this me and my wife moved to Panama, it was there that I began teaching Primary and where I completed my PGCE through Nottingham University. My wife and I spent 4 fantastic years in Panama where I also had the opportunity to begin a Masters in Education, again with Nottingham University which I am soon to complete.

I am really excited by the prospect of living in China and working at BSG. Me and my wife love travelling to new places and experiencing the local culture. I am a big Everton fan and I love to play and watch many different sports.
