I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Beijing Language and Culture University in Chinese and Japanese Bilingual Studies. I also have 5 Cambridge TKTs, modules 1 to 3 plus Early Years and CLIL, as well as a 120 hour TESOL certificate.
Throughout university and even before starting university I did a lot of part time tutoring for early years' children which gave me informal but essential experience in teaching young children. After graduation I worked for EF for two and a half years up until I had my daughter, and then I focused on family life for a year. Since September 2020 I worked for Beanstalk International Kindergarten as a Homeroom teacher for one academic year.
I took the decision to come to BSB Shunyi as the quality of teaching and learning has always been incredibly well known and it's a school I've always wanted to be a part of!
I am very passionate, caring and love to share knowledge and make people smile! I have a keen interest in Asian languages, music and animals! I have lived in Beijing for 8 years and love the culture, people and the food here and consider Beijing to be a second home. I have a family here, my daughter is 20 months old. I aspire to continue growing in my teaching career and abilities.
