Helen Giddens


Year 3A Class Teacher

I joined BISB from The British International School Shanghai Pudong Campus where I taught Reception and Year 1. 

Previously I was Early Years Leader and Reception teacher at the British International School Vietnam Ho Chi Minh City, a school judged to be 'Outstanding' by the British Overseas Inspection team. I trained to be a teacher at the University of St. John in York and took up my first teaching position near by at Reid Street school in Darlington where I taught Reception and Year 1. 

I love books and enjoy reading whenever possible. I enjoy being creative with children and also in my spare time where I have an interest in pottery and photography. I enjoy dance and I am keen to keep fit through Zumba fitness classes. I have travelled extensively around South East Asia experiencing many amazing cultures.
