After qualifying as a teacher in her hometown, Oxford, Charlotte moved to Birmingham to start her teaching career as a Year 3 class teacher. There she discovered she was able to combine her creativity with her desire to motivate and encourage children to learn, having an active role in the extracurricular activities as well as planning the curriculum. Having always loved travelling, especially in Asia, Charlotte wanted to pursue her career in China and was extremely excited to join the BISS Puxi team in August 2013.
Coming from a family of musicians, music has always been a big part of Charlotte’s life and she developed a love of the stage alongside this throughout school. Musical theatre is a big passion of hers which Charlotte has been lucky enough to explore through directing, producing, stage managing and acting. Charlotte has had the opportunity to visit some amazing countries and hopes to continue travelling during her time in Asia. Family and friends are very important to Charlotte, especially her partner Kunal who is planning to join her in Shanghai as soon as possible.
