Assistant Head of Mandarin
After graduating in 1999, Carmel taught English as a foreign language in kindergartens and middle schools. She joined NAIS Pudong in September 2002 as she wanted to know more about international schooling and the British curriculum, as well as different the ways of teaching and learning in the classroom. Carmel’s first role was as a Teacher Assistant which broadened her knowledge of teaching in an international school. After one-and-a-half years, she started to work as a Primary EAL teacher which saw her return to the field she was focused on before joined this school. In 2011, she became a secondary Mandarin teacher as she was very interested in adapting the teaching methods she learned and experienced into Mandarin teaching and learning.
Carmel is a responsible, hard-working and enthusiastic person who likes making friends and exploring different cultures. She enjoys watching movies, playing basketball and keeping fit. I is married with a 6-year-old daughter, Lucia.
