Reception Teacher

BSc, PGCE

I  have a Bachelor of Science in International Business from Palm Beach Atlantic University and a PGCE in General Education (Focus: Early Childhood) from Leeds Becket University.

I have worked in China for five years in both public and international schools. For me BSB is a place where I have dreamed of working for many years, and I am so excited to have the opportunity of being part of this team. I greatly respect the British curriculum as I feel it incorporates several of the best teaching practices from different pedagogies. I am a huge fan of individualised learning. I believe it to be the best way to meet the needs of the child in the classroom situation and make learning fun for each student in their individual learning styles. I cannot wait to meet everyone and start my journey as a Reception teacher at BSB Shunyi!

During my time in China, I experienced teaching EAL to public primary school students. Independently teaching classes of 50 students taught me valuable classroom management skills which benefit me to this day. It was an amazing experience, and I learnt that my passion lies in spending more time with individual students to better meet their educational needs. Eager to make a bigger impact with personalised education, I then went on to teach at the International Montessori School of Beijing in the Early Childhood department. I was very happy to be part of this team and fell in love with the open floor plan and individualised learning facilitated there. I was fully convinced of my calling to become a teacher, and began my PGCE in 2018. I focused on Early Childhood Education and became familiar with the EYFS framework as well as how it relates to the Montessori pedagogy.

On a more personal note, I will start by saying I am soon to be a newlywed! My fiancé and I are tying the knot this summer in Sanya. I am a vegan and an organiser for the non-profit group ‘Vegans of Beijing’, where I put together monthly events and work with emerging vegan companies to promote their products. In my spare time I can be found experimenting in the kitchen, getting creative with vegan baking. I also love hiking, running, and playing various sports such as badminton, squash, and tennis.
