Primary EAL Teacher

BA, CELTA

In 2006, I graduated from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications with a Bachelor’s Degree in English. All through my university years, I worked with a variety of services that supported children's learning and gained considerable teaching experience doing so. After graduation, I accepted the offer of a trade company first and then a logistics corporation.  

In 2017, I came to realize that teaching is my true passion and therefore joined the family of the British School of Beijing, Shunyi as a teaching assistant. A year later, I became a supply / cover teacher in EYFS, which was an exciting and rewarding experience. In 2018, I completed my CELTA and received the top grade of A due to my outstanding competence in terms of planning and lesson delivery.  

Starting in August 2022, I am embarking on a new role as a Primary EAL teacher, which I am passionate about.  Working with children is fulfilling and enjoyable to me. My goal is to create a warm, safe, positive, and nurturing environment where my students can flourish not only academically but also as individuals.   

I enjoy spending time with my family and I love nature. In my spare time, we go to the mountains or parks to enjoy the beautiful views of nature and refresh ourselves.
