Staff Profile: Sabrina Malcolm-Severn

SMA MALCOLM-SEVERN Sabrina Secondary

Head of Global Languages

Sabrina graduated from King’s College London with a First Class degree in French. Following graduation, she worked as a recruitment consultant for a financial consulting firm in London. Her love of languages and happy memories as a language learner inspired her to qualify as a teacher and it is a decision she has never regretted.

Sabrina taught Modern Languages for three years in the UK (KS3, GCSE and A-level) where she was also Head of Year 7 for a year. She moved to Shanghai because she knew her destiny was to seek out new adventures and challenges abroad. Sabrina is now approaching a decade in China and at NAIS Pudong. She feels that a constant during that time has been the commitment and enthusiasm of the students, the vibrancy and diversity of the student body and the wonderful support and encouragement of their parents. 

Sabrina is married with a five-year-old son, Riley, who shares her passion for superheroes. She has been collecting comics and graphic novels for over 25 years. Sabrina loves to compose and perform poems and songs in French and English for friends, family, colleagues and students. Thanks to the influence of her husband Ali, she is a keen outdoor runner.
