Megan is a BA (Hons) Graduate of Birmingham City University, where she gained a degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing, Design for Industry, before going on to train as a teacher through the Graduate Training Programme in West Berkshire. Megan made this career change into teaching after realising her love of working with children through various work experience placements. She went back to study for her teaching qualification through a work based learning programme and gained a postgraduate teaching qualification from West Berkshire Training Provider.
Starting her teaching career at a large, inner city school in Bristol, she gained valuable experience and opportunities, before moving to China with her husband, Simon Fisher who is teaching Year 5 at BISS Puxi. She has worked in Bishop Road School for two years which is Ofsted rated Outstanding, gaining valuable teaching practice in Year 3 and Year 2.
She is passionate about ensuring all children receive focused, exciting learning and that every child is given the opportunity and support to reach their full potential. Megan is exultant to be part of the BISS Puxi team and she is looking forward to embracing her role within the school.
Megan has always been interested in Art, which drove her decision to study Jewellery Design and Making in both London and Birmingham. These creative courses then inspired her to travel and experience different cultures, as through her studying she has focussed on jewellery and how it is used around the world.
She has been privileged enough to travel to many countries across Europe, Africa and Asia, all of which contributed to and supported her desire to work abroad.
Megan had a very outdoor childhood and walked, camped and explored all the time. This gave her a love of the outdoors and she always likes to go on walks with friends and family, particularly near the coast where she has spent a lot of time. Her family are a large and important part of her life, who she constantly takes inspiration from. She is always learning from them, with the knowledge that they support her development and secure her own values, aspirations and aims for her future.
