Mark

Teacher of PE and International Award

Mark completed his PGCE with the University of Sunderland, England. Prior to moving with his family to Shanghai to take up his position at NAIS Pudong, he lived and taught in Abu Dhabi for thirteen years, five of those at our Nord Anglia Education sister school. Mark has an extensive knowledge of teaching PE throughout different year groups from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 10.  He has completed his FA Football Coaching Certificates and has coached youth teams for over five years on a voluntary basis.

Having worked for Nord Anglia Education before, it was quite an easy decision for him to join NAIS Pudong as he believes in the global learning philosophy and approach to education adopted by Nord Anglia Education. He believes in the importance of encouraging all children to be ambitious and supporting them to be the best that they can be as well as opening the door for students to become global citizens. He looks forward to supporting the school on its continuous journey towards excellence.

In his personal time, Mark enjoys spending quality time with his family. He is passionate about sports and is a keen triathlete. He also completed his first Half Ironman last year. Mark also enjoys playing football and attending the gym. He enjoys cooking and makes a mean barbeque! Teaching at NAIS Pudong is truly a family affair for Mark as his wife, Tamara, teaches in the Early Years and their two children attend the school as well.
