Laura graduated from the University of Southampton with a degree in Psychology. After two years of industry experience, working for companies such as IBM, she decided to pursue a career in education. Her priority was to work in a caring profession where she could help enable young people to realise and fulfil their potential. Laura completed a PGCE with Early Years specialism at the University of Exeter and started to work in a Primary school in Cornwall, UK for 7 years. She then worked in an International School in Suzhou, China. She has ten years of teaching experience and her practice is based on promoting child-centred, active, challenging and meaningful learning experiences.
Laura chose to come to BISS Puxi because she admired the school’s mission to help children thrive and valued the emphasis placed on high quality and exciting learning. Laura is very much looking forward to being part of the BISS team and becoming part of the school community.
Laura has lived in Suzhou for three years and has thoroughly enjoyed living in China. She is looking forward to moving to Shanghai and living in such an exciting and dynamic city.
Laura believes passionately in the importance of health and wellbeing. She enjoys exploring healthy eating options and keeping fit – both in body and mind. She has recently completed courses in mindfulness, yoga and boxing.
She particularly enjoys exploring far flung places and experiencing new cultures. In recent years, her favourite locations have included Uganda and Panama, both of which she found fascinating to visit.
