Staff Profile: Tamara Keenan

Keenan Tamara Staff

Deputy Head of Primary

With her initial undergraduate background in Media & Communication Studies with French, Tamara then went on to do her Post Graduate Certificate in Education and has been in education since 2002. In her (almost) two decades in the vocation, Tamara has gained varied and extensive experience in both management and teaching within Primary and the Early Years.  Five of these years she spent in our sister school, BIS Abu Dhabi, in the UAE.

Tamara has been in beautiful China and with NAIS Pudong since 2015. She has been part of the Senior Leadership Team and involved in driving the school’s vision and feels fortunate to have been part of our students’ learning journeys; watching them develop and progress. 

Building the foundations in education is a passion of Tamara’s and innovative and active learning is in every part of her philosophy to education. It is her belief that teaching and learning is about creating cross-curricular learning opportunities; nurturing students with the confidence to be inquisitive, lead their own learning and be ambitious.

Family is at the core of everything Tamara does and she is very blessed to have such an incredible and supportive one. Tamara enjoys swimming and cooking. However, her favourite pastimes are playing board games with her family and babysitting her niece and nephew; that is whenever they are lucky to be altogether in the same country.
