    Head of Middle School & Humanity and Literacy Teacher

    Sarah Donnelly

    I began my career in 2004 teaching Secondary English within a large 11-18 Comprehensive in Devon. Keen to progress, I changed schools two years later to become Second in Department at Tiverton High School where I remained for four years, eventually as Head of English. During these four years I enjoyed many different roles, including being the Key Stage 4 Co-ordinator for English, mentoring PGCE students and Newly Qualified Teachers, and contributing to some Heinemann-published teaching materials.

    In 2010 I decided I wanted a change of direction in my life and sought an opportunity to teach abroad. I began my role as an English teacher at BISS Pudong in 2010; the following year, I became Head of English again. During my time at BISS, I became very inspired by several books I was reading. It led to a decision to undergo more formal education myself, and I therefore applied for, and have now completed, a Masters in Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University (2014-2016). While there, the opportunity to develop NAISNY’s middle school presented itself, and I have been here ever since.

    Throughout my 13 years teaching experience, I have remained a passionate educator who is dedicated to developing best practice when it comes to inspiring young people in their learning journeys. I have particularly enjoyed teaching in international contexts because of the diversity of experience and opportunity it has provided me with. Working with colleagues, students and families from a vast range of backgrounds is a perfect way to cultivate an ethos of global-mindedness, an aspect of education close to my heart. Moreover, all of these experiences have continually reinforced to me the importance of a supportive and caring community, not to mention how rewarding it is to play a role in creating such an environment.

    Jason has 6 years of teaching experience in the UK. He studied Physics at the University of York and moved to Manchester to obtain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) for Secondary Science. Jason hopes to integrate technology within the classroom and use it to allow students to document their personal learning journeys. With the exponential growth of social media, join believes that it is more important than ever that students are able to communicate their ideas well and be familiar with technology. Jason is keen to promote the engagement of social media by starting a co-curricular activity that our students can vlog their experiences at NAISNY.
