Tessa is originally from Australia where she began her teaching career. Joining the Léman family in 2018, this is her third year teaching at the school. She is currently a homeroom teacher for Year 6.  

Tessa graduated from James Cook University in Australia with a bachelor's degree of Primary Education. She began her teaching career at a private school on the Gold Coast where she worked for four years. She decided it was time for a new challenge and chose China as the first country for her international teaching career. Tessa has taught across a range of different ages from Year 2 to Year 6 and taught within a primary and middle school setting. Recently, Tessa has completed her Master of Education Degree, majoring in Leadership and Management, through Queensland University of Technology.  

Tessa is passionate about Carol Dweck’s theory of a growth mindset. This is the belief that intelligence can grow through effort and persistence. Within the classroom, she focuses on building the students’ growth mindset. She believes that students should celebrate mistakes, embrace challenges and believe in their abilities to grow. Tessa believes this mindset is the foundation for future success.
