University Degree: BA (Hons) Media with Cultural Studies, PGCE
I am a qualified Primary and EAL teacher. I graduated with a BA (Hons) Media with Cultural Studies at Solent University Southampton England and completed my PGCE with a speciality in English at Poole SCITT and a RSA/TEFEL Cambridge graduated with higher B level (top 10 percent of nationwide students at the time ).
I started my professional teaching career as an EAL teacher ; the highlight of which was working at the prestigious Bangkok Patana school in Thailand working with the Early Years to Year 2 children. I was so inspired by my experiences there, I returned to England to train as a Primary teacher. Since then I have worked in a number of schools and countries around the world including the UK, Russia, Romania, Latvia, Thailand, Vietnam and China .
I have taught across all the Primary Key Stages - Early years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 . This is my third time working in China as I have previously worked for Nord Anglia Education in Ningbo and Shanghai. I have led the subjects of Literacy and Humanities and was a consultant for a brand new school in Vietnam . As I had previously worked in China and for Nord Anglia Education, it was a very easy decision to come to BSB Shunyi. I have always felt that Nord Anglia Education is a very professional company and it offers students and staff great opportunties to grow personally and professionally. In particular, I was drawn to the community feel of the school here in Shunyi , loved the initiatives and level of challenge the children receive and felt that the this school delivers an excellent all round educational experience for the children.
