    Laura Baxter

    Year 2 Class Teacher

    Laura Baxter

    Laura graduated with a Bachelor of Education from Aberdeen University in 2012. Having gained her QTS in a large open plan school in the North East of Scotland, Laura knew her next step would be to embark on her career as an international teacher. Laura then spent a whirlwind year teaching a year 3 class in Kuwait before jetting off to South America. For the next three years, Laura taught in a private British school working in both Reception and Year 1. Laura also had the pleasure of facilitating the highly successful Junior student council for 2 years. 

    Living and teaching in an international setting for the majority of her teaching career has helped shape Laura both personally and professional. Laura has become very apt at expecting the unexpected and embracing the unknown in life. Laura joins us in Shanghai after a year spent teaching a year 4 class back home in Scotland. Although sad to leave her family again, Laura is looking forward to moving to China and joining the NAIS family.

    Year 2 Class Teacher

    David O’ Dwyer

    With a keen interest in Literature and Language, Dave obtained a BA Honours in English and German at the University of Limerick, Ireland.  Furthering his studies, he then spent a year studying Linguistics at Karl Francis University, Austria. A summer spent teaching English as a foreign Language made Dave realise his passion for teaching and in 2005, he took the decision to move to the UK, to obtain his PGCE at the University of Warwick.

    After 12 years teaching across the whole of the Primary Phase, Dave aims to develop a real love of learning in his classroom.  Taking a lead on developing a creative curriculum in his school in the Midlands, Dave believes that happy and motivated children achieve best and he strives to ensure every lesson is stimulating and engaging for every child.  Dave decided to move to Shanghai to broaden both his cultural and professional horizons and he is very much looking forward to the challenges, rewards and experiences  teaching at NAIS Pudong will bring.
