Staff Profile: Samantha Rae

Samantha Rae

Deputy Head of Primary School

Samantha studied at DeMontfort University, gaining a Bachelor of Education, specialising in English and Physical Education. She started her career in a large primary school in Warwickshire, teaching all year groups in Key Stage 2 and becoming an Advanced Mathematics teacher for the county. 

Samantha came to the British International School Shanghai Puxi, six years ago, as a Year 6 teacher and has had various roles of responsibility as a middle and senior leader. Her decision to move to The British International School, Puxi was based on her own international upbringing in Hong Kong as well as the challenge of a new school, in a vibrant international setting and all that it brought with it. 

Samantha is an outgoing person, who loves to shop and travel. Being based in China she has the opportunity to visit some amazing countries, observe different cultures and purchase little trinkets from these beautiful places.

Samantha has a contagious laugh and can be heard down many of the school corridors, having a joke with the students and adults alike. 

What the students say about me...

"I really enjoy French with Miss Rae; she helps us learn by singing songs".

"Miss Rae is a great teacher; her lessons are always jam packed with fun".

"My English has improved a lot with Miss Rae as my teacher, she is so kind".
