Chris Beggs Middle School Math Teacher

Middle School Math Teacher

I have taught Middle School Math with the World Leading Schools Association in Shanghai, China, also High School Math in Shanghai, and Middle School Math in England. I have also taught English in Ürümqi, Xinjiang, in the Muslim part of China. I have a degree in Mathematics from Leeds University, U.K., and a PGCE teaching qualification from Nottingham University, U.K.

My Chinese wife, Elaine, will be joining me in Costa Rica. I love music, especially jazz and world music, and I helped to organise the BBC Music Live 2000 festival in Leicester, U.K. I have also travelled widely, everywhere from Afghanistan to Yemen.
