Head of Year & Teacher of English

I started teaching nine years ago, after completing a degree in English and Classical Literature at the University of Birmingham.  The fascinating array of texts I studied led me to pursue a career in teaching; I wanted to facilitate discussions with young people about literature and what it reveals about the world that we inhabit.  I have worked in schools and colleges all over the UK, from: rural Wales, to the Sussex coast, to inner-city London.  It has been great to teach students from across the country and learn from them.  I always seek to improve as a teacher and I love developing new methods to use in the classroom.  This led me to take on a role in charge of CPD at a large sixth form college in London.  It was great to work with teachers and consider ways of improving the students’ learning experience.

A few years ago I got the travelling bug.  A trip to India enthralled me and I decided to move there to teach for a year.  It was whilst I was in India that I heard about Nord Anglia and its family of schools.  I was attracted to British School of Guangzhou due to its outstanding reputation.  Once I applied for the post, everyone I spoke to was so friendly and I knew that I wanted to work in such a supportive environment. 

The opportunity to travel and see so many great things in China was a real bonus!  I have loved all of my educational experiences, both as a student and teacher, and I hope to instil a lifelong love of learning in the pupils at BSG.  Outside of school my passion is the theatre, I love seeing plays and musicals with friends.  I hope to sample all of the cultural opportunities that Guangzhou and China have on offer.  No doubt one of my first stops will be Zaha Hadid’s splendid opera house!
