Reception Teacher


Since graduating with a BA in Applied Language and Translation Studies from Dublin City University, it has been a main ambition of mine to work within education. I have spent five years living and working as an Early Years specialist in Beijing. I am extremely grateful for the experiences, opportunities and challenges that I have had over recent years collaborating with young children from ages 3-6.  

My experience teaching with young learners has provided me with opportunities working with various curricula, the most recent being IB Primary Years Programme. I ensure to meet the holistic and academic needs of the learners in my care, through understanding the child’s strengths, interests and limitations – while also having fun!  

I love to stay active by playing sports. I play for a women’s football team, in addition to playing Gaelic football. On the weekends, I enjoy getting out of the city and hiking on the Great Wall and afar. I have a lot of passion for languages and have studied both Chinese and French at university level. "Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things but learning another way to think about things." - Flora Lewis 

I am very much looking forward to joining BSB Shunyi this year and working with the EYFS team to provide a challenging, exciting and caring environment for my new students.
