Andrew began his career in education by teaching Secondary English in Nottingham, UK. He subsequently taught Year 6 for five years at an international school in Ipoh, Malaysia. In 2016 he took up the position of Year 6 class teacher and Upper Key Stage 2 Leader at NAIS Pudong, and then Assistant Head Teacher in 2017.
Andrew’s proudest achievements include organising the whole year group production of Macbeth, and running a Year 6 fairground fundraiser to make money for the Heart to Heart charity. He loves working at NAIS Pudong with a friendly and optimistic group of staff and students. He enjoys working with all ages of children in a variety of subjects and loves the cultural understanding which is possible in a diverse international school. Creating fascination, motivation and enthusiasm in a group of students is what attracted him to the profession, and continue to be the best part of the job.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys keeping fit by playing 5-a-side football; he looks forward to playing with a new team in Shanghai. His other sporting interests include jogging, golf and squash. He is an avid traveller who has explored most of Southeast Asia; South America and Africa are next on the list! He married his wonderful partner Bethany in Budapest in July 2018.
