    Year 2 Teacher, Head of Year 2

    Tiffanie Burt

    I am a qualified Primary and EAl teacher. 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.

    Year 2 Teacher

    Amanda Thorp

    Since graduating from Dundee University, Scotland, with both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Architecture degrees, I have worked extensively with children, primarily through my passion for swimming. Alongside a 20 year career in construction, I devoted the majority of evenings and weekends to teaching and coaching swimming, from early years up to adulthood, with coaching roles both at regional and national level as part of English Schools Swimming in the UK.

    Following two years living in Bangkok, Thailand, I joined BSB in September 2017 and gained my TEFL certification, working first in Early Years, then in Year 4 and Year 5 (SEN). My experience confirmed my desire to be a primary class teacher, so I could be a part of ensuring that each child’s individual potential is unlocked and realised. This  led to the undertaking of my PGCEi teaching qualification, which has now enabled me to join the teaching team in Year 2.  I am very excited about my new role and looking forward to my future in teaching, here at BSB.

    Year 2 Teacher

    Kaila Yadlin

    In 2011 I finished my A-levels, obtained a TEFL certification and came to China for a teach-and-travel gap year. During my first week teaching, I realised that my true passion lay in educating young learners which made me pursue this career. I obtain a degree in Chinese Language and Culture as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Nottingham University.

    I was raised as part of a mobile family and spent most of my school life in international schooling just like many at BSB. I have always had an affinity for working with young learners. My cosmopolitan upbringing allows me to educate and nurture from a place of understanding and care. My mother is a veteran teacher and has been working with children for decades. She continues to be a major source of guidance and inspiration for me in both life and career. This is my first year at BSB and I'm excited to become a valued member of the BSB family.
