In 2005 she made the decision to become a qualified teacher and completed a PGDE at Edinburgh University whereupon she taught French at an independent school in Edinburgh for 5 years.
Having attended international schools herself as a child, she was keen to return to this environment but as a teacher this time! She moved to China in 2011 where she taught French and English as Additional Language and was Housemistress at a British International School in Tianjin before joining BISS Puxi in August 2013. She has enjoyed her pastoral role as Head of Year 8 and also teaching such a wide range of motivated pupils.
Katherine moved to Shanghai with her family (she has two children who attend BISS Puxi) and they are delighted to be living in such a vibrant city and studying / working at such a truly international school. Apart from exploring new corners of the world, she enjoys pilates / yoga and most outdoor pursuits.
