Pleased To Meet You…Megan Fisher

26 November 2014

This week we spoke to Megan Fisher, Year 2 Class Teacher.

How long have you been at BISS Puxi? I started in August so only three months so far.

What made you want to move to Shanghai and our school? My husband and I have always wanted to work abroad and some friends of ours were working out here and always spoke so fondly of the job that we enquired in to available teaching positions. After what felt like no time at all, we were offered the jobs and here we are!

What do you enjoy doing on the weekend? We live in the Former French Concession which has such a range of places to wander around, so we like to walk and explore. We recently went to Century Park to see a bit of nature and that was great fun, especially when we came across a giant inflatable duck on the lake. We enjoy food so we do tend to eat out on the weekends as there is so much on offer in Shanghai!

What's the one thing you couldn't live without? I couldn't live without friends and family as they are always a constant support on our different life adventures.

Where are you from and what do you miss most from home? I was living in Bristol before I moved here and I am from a county called Wiltshire, which is very green and full of farmland. When I think of England, I miss the countryside the most and my family of course, especially my niece Elsa who is growing up too fast!
