Year 2 Teacher

BA (Hons)

I graduated from Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln in 2016 with a BA Honours in Education and English and I’m from Lincoln, Lincolnshire in England. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher. I love helping the people around me learn and master something new.  

I have experience in many different types of educational environments. I returned to my former Primary school, Bicker Preparatory School, to experience teaching in a private Primary school. I have also worked in Primary schools in a deprived area, for children with autism, and state secondary schools. During my time at university, I used my summer vacations to gain teaching experience. I went to America and taught archery, riflery, football, tennis and swimming to young children at a camp in North Carolina. I was a friend, mentor, and carer for many sets of young children.  

After graduating, I went to France and taught archery, orientation and low ropes to Primary school students. I then taught at a secondary school for children with autism in Spalding, U.K. I received the offer to work in China in the spring of 2017. Since arriving in China, I have taught in training centres, public primary schools, international schools and kindergartens. 

I love football. I play for a team in Beijing called Beijing Spirit. This is where I have met most of my best friends. I love West Ham and Lincoln City and in my personal opinion, they are the best football teams in the world. I am a big fan of running. I love running 5K or 10K. I love political thrillers - Darkest Hour and Argo are two of my favourite movies. I can speak a little bit of French and German, but to be honest, I'm out of practice! I am somewhat conversational in Mandarin Chinese and I am studying to pass the HSK 3 test.  

I am thrilled to be joining BSB as it is such a prestigious and outstanding school. I'm really looking forward to getting started in August 2022.
