Year 4 Teacher

BA (hons), iPGCE, TEFL

I graduated with a BA (hons) in French from University of Leeds in the UK and also have a Teaching English as a foreign Language (TEFL) certificate. I have also completed the iPGCE with the University of Derby, also in the UK. 

I had my first experience of teaching abroad during my undergraduate degree at a school in an underprivileged area of France.  I enjoyed being able to make such a big impact in these students’ lives and their learning.  After graduating, this experience led me to working as a teaching assistant in both primary and secondary schools in my hometown of Cambridge. Working as both a classroom assistant and a one-to-one assistant for students with additional needs gave me an invaluable insight and knowledge into both classroom management and inclusion strategies. 

After arriving in Beijing in 2014, I worked as a homeroom teacher in a bilingual school. Since being in Beijing, it has been my dream to work at BSB Shunyi, because of their amazing ethos and wonderful school environment.  The colleagues made me feel so welcome and supported, and the students impressed me so much, both their positive energy for learning and the real team spirit I saw throughout the different year groups.  I knew then that BSB Shunyi was a school where I could spend many happy years and grow and progress in my teaching career.  I was thrilled join as a full-time class teacher in 2022 August. 

Each child has their own special talents and unique dreams. I believe that as a teacher it is my job to create a platform for children to discover these outstanding talents and skills within them. I like to remind students of the powerful quote, ‘the expert in anything was once a beginner.’ As adults we remember the teachers who unlocked that potential. 

Outside of the classroom, you may find me at the swimming pool with my daughter, at a trampoline park or doing some home baking. We love hosting parties and cooking dinners for our friends. When she is a little bit older, I hope to share my love of travelling with her.  There’s so much more of China and the world for us to explore!
