Sharon Taylor

Year 1 Class Teacher

Sharon joined NAIS Pudong in April 2018 and brings her passion for Visual Arts and teaching to the Year 1 classroom. Sharon started her teaching career in Melbourne, Australia after graduating from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Teaching and a Graduate Diploma in Special Studies (Visual Arts).  She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, teaching across all stages of Key Stage 1 and 2 in Australia and the United Kingdom. Sharon’s teaching and learning strategies have developed as a result of working with children of varying ages and abilities from diverse socio economic groups, EAL children and children with disabilities. Her classroom practices reflect many different teaching and learning strategies that focus on creating a stimulating, challenging and non-threatening environment.

Sharon expects that all children should participate in meaningful learning, and as such she encourages all children to feel enthusiastic and engage themselves fully in learning activities.  She creates a warm and positive classroom environment through helping her students build on their experiences, backgrounds and interests. This atmosphere ensures that all children in her class achieve success and maintain high levels of self-esteem.

Sharon has lived in the UK, Japan and Hong Kong.  While looking after her family she has gained a Pilates Instructor qualification and has offered a range of visual art classes for children in the communities she had lived in. She loves living in Shanghai!  In her spare time she enjoys exploring the old parts of Shanghai’s city and she is always building on her skills as a teacher, an artist and a lifelong learner.
