    I studied Accounting and Finance at the University of Kent, Canterbury and DeMontfort University. After sometime in the accounting field, I decided to change my career path and strive to become someone who could make an impact on the future generation. During my time at school, my teachers made such an impression on my learning journey and truly believed in my potential; this experience inspired me to become the very teacher I am today.

    I completed the PGCE for Primary Education at the Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln. With the desire to make an impact and develop my career, I decided to move to London and teach in inner city schools. Teaching in these areas gave me a wealth of experience. It provided me with a platform to develop my management skills as Year Group Leader of 5 and 6 and lead core subjects such a Writing and Science. As a strong believer of lifelong learning, I have continued my professional development by completing the Montessori training and Middle Leaders training.

    Year 4 Teacher

    Mari Wabeke

    I was born in Pretoria, South Africa.  I'm a qualified teacher with 15 years teaching experience and counting.  I received my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Pretoria and my Honors degree from the University of South Africa specializing in Educational Management.  I have taught different subjects and different grades up until Year 8.  I was also the Head of Department for Natural Science in my home country.  In 2016 we moved to Shunyi, Beijing.  Prior to joining BSB I worked at another international school in Beijing where I was a Grade 3 Homeroom teacher.

    I am a positive person who commands mutual respect, conscientiousness and punctuality.  I encourage learners to develop their talents and skills to the maximum of their ability to equip them for their future in a global society.  I am constantly broadening my teaching experience to further my career.  Education is one of my passions in life and I strive to stimulate the interest of the children and their inquisitive minds.

    Family time is very important to me and in my free time I like to spend it with my husband and our daughter.  We love to explore new places in China, go for walks in all the beautiful gardens and also to travel.  I'm looking forward making new memories with my class of this year.

    Year 4 Teacher

    Thomas Knight

    I studied at the University of Birmingham, UK. I have an undergraduate degree in Environmental Management and Technology and a postgraduate degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I am licensed to teach in the US and the UK. I have been teaching in Beijing for around eight years now, but I was drawn to working at BSB Shunyi because I sought a school that promotes holistic learning experiences through innovative practices. I believe learning should be challenging, fun and transferrable.

    I grew up in the South West of the UK with my three brothers. I am passionate about the environment and sustainability. I enjoy travelling, nature and calisthenics. I hope to further my understanding and appreciation of the diversity present throughout the world and continue to find ways to utilise these differences as a resource for education.
