Teddies Teacher


I have a bachelor’s degree with the University of Queensland (Australia) majoring in management and have attained my PGCEi through the University of Nottingham (UK) with distinction. 

While I have lived mostly in China and Australia, I have travelled for personal and business reasons to many other countries and am genuinely interested in the benefits of being a global citizen. International education, therefore, has always been something I am passionate about. With the birth of my son, I became a stay-at-home mother and continued with this important job for a few years before returning to the workforce again as a full-time working mother. During this time, I pursued an interest in child psychology, early childhood development, and language acquisition for young children. I’ve also worked within administrative and translating positions at an international bilingual school (K-12).  

In the past couple of years, I have worked full-time at BSB with our youngest students and have had the great opportunity to work with all three age groups within EYFS as a cover teacher in the past school year. It is such a great pleasure to meet and know all the EYFS students and to be able to witness the progress these wonderful children have made in our school setting. I am honored to continue my journey with BSB in this loving and caring environment.  

Besides work and family, I like photography and language learning. I am bilingual in English and Mandarin and aim to become fluent in a couple more languages. Both of my children have attended BSB in the past few years and my family lives quite a simple lifestyle. We love spending time together and exploring different books, toys, food, places and playing with our dog.  

I look forward to working with our youngest students who I am certain will have a very joyful and fruitful experience here with us at BSB Shunyi.
