I am a qualified Early Years Professional with a BA in Early Years, Foundation degree in Early Years, Certificate in Early Years Practice and CELTA. I have been teaching Early Years for seven years in a variety of counties, including UK, China, Vietnam and Latvia.
When I was in China I worked for Nord Anglia at BISS Pudong campus first as a Head of Year for Nursery and then as Deputy Head of Early Years. Prior to teaching Early Years, I was PE teacher for five years teaching whole school PE.
For me it was an easy decision to return to the Nord Anglia family to work at BSB Shunyi in 2018, having been given such fantastic opportunities in the past to create positive change for our youngest members of the community. I believe that BSB Shunyi provides a truly child centred approach to learning in which every child has their individual learning styles catered for and that this will enable them to reach their full potential and be the best that they can be.
I enjoyed working with the BSB Shunyi Early Years team to make all of the children’s learning experience fun and exciting, creating a love of learning that will stay with them through their school life and beyond. I am a passionate Early Years teacher and love nothing more than seeing the excitement on children’s faces when they enter the classroom and see something new that excites them.
I enjoy sport and particularly playing badminton, squash and five aside football. I am a father of three. I have two girls and a boy and am very proud of them and their achievements. I love to travel and explore different countries and cultures and I am very excited about exploring Beijing. I am married to Mrs Burt who is the Head of Year 2 at BSB Shunyi. Both my wife and myself enjoyed being part of the BSB Shunyi community.
