    Jonathan Jones

    It is a privilege to be joining BSB Shunyi as a Year 3 Teacher and the Head of Year 3.  I obtained a Bachelor of Arts and Graduate Diploma of Education from the Univeristy of Newcastle, Australia in 2006. I initially worked for ten years at one private school in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, teaching across a range of subject areas in both the primary and secondary school. In 2014, I completed a Masters of Education from the University of New England, majoring in School Leadership and Management.

    BSB is my second international posting, having previously taught for the last two years at another international school in Beijing, where I undertook the role of a Year 3 Teacher and Numeracy Coordinator.

    Year 3 Teacher

    Gemma Payne

    I am a qualified teacher with a TESOL certificate and a PGCE with a specialism in teaching students with learning disabilities and/or difficulties. Last year I worked as a cover teacher and Teaching Assistant in Year 6 which was wonderful and now I'm really looking forward to being a Year 3 class teacher. 

    I first started teaching in 1996 in Hunan Province, China, and living and working in China again is great and I feel very much at home. I have 4 years international teaching experience as well as 5 years teaching in the English state education system. I have taught EFL, English/literacy, numeracy and ICT as well as basic skills, across a range of vocational subjects to learners aged 5 to adults. I have also worked for a London homeless charity and then I set up a my own business whilst my daughters were young.

    Year 3 Teacher

    Juanita Steenkamp

    I started my teaching career in 2005 at a private school in South Africa. It all started as I wanted to coach sport but got asked to be a Teaching Assistant in a class whilst finishing my Bachelor’s Degree after one year of being a TA, I stepped into class as a Homeroom teacher, and never looked back.

    I completed my first year Psychology degree through the University of Pretoria in South Africa and then switched to a Bachelor’s degree in Education through the University of South Africa. I relocated to China in 2015 where I started my teaching career at a bilingual school. To teach at BSB was always a dream and it became a reality in 2020.  It is an honour to be part of an organisation that believes in the students and the continuous development of the staff.  I believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve in life and we need to raise and teach our children to believe the same. BE AMBITIOUS!
