Staff Profile: Rebecca Kernaghan

Rebecca Ann Kernaghan

History Teacher

Having studied History at King’s College London, Rebecca went on to complete my teacher training at the London Institute of Education. She then worked in several of the top state schools in London, including Latymer Grammar School, Fortismere and the London Oratory School. 

She aims to create challenging but engaging lessons for students of all abilities. In addition to teaching History, she has specialised in teaching EAL students, because many of the pupils she worked with in London spoke English as their second language and History requires very sophisticated language skills. She is very grateful for this experience, as this meant she could diversify her job.

Since working at BISS Puxi, she has had many opportunities such as teaching Theory of Knowledge, running Model United Nations and helping the I.A. trips. She came to work in Shanghai because of her husband’s work and is very glad she did, as she enjoys working at BISS Puxi. She feels it is an exciting place to work, with great staff and pupils. 

She has a wide range of interests, such as reading classical literature, running, skiing and exploring new places in Shanghai and everywhere else! She loves to walk (or run) around Shanghai and find hidden gems that are tucked away. She is on a mission to make everyone see the historical charm and beauty in Shanghai.

What the students say about me...

“Ms Kernaghan is very nice and the kindest teacher ever. I like the way she teaches us.”

Her “way of teaching is very clear and easy to understand”

“We always get really cool topics and work.”
