How long have you been at BISS Puxi? Since August 2013.
What do you enjoy most about working here? I really like the students, they are keen to learn and really value the varied opportunities the school provides for them.
What’s been your favourite holiday since living in Shanghai? I went to Myanmar at half term and had a great time visiting some amazing temples (I thoroughly recommend Bagan) and travelled around the country in some incredible ways, trains, planes, motorbikes and all sorts.
What do you enjoy most about the city? I like the complex mix of Eastern and Western culture and the fact that you can have such varied experiences in the same city. There is always something going on; live music, art exhibitions, new restaurants opening, sporting events.
What is your favourite science experiment to conduct in class? Any experiment which generates interest and excitement are the ones I really like. One of the most fun is to use the Van der Graaf generator to teach students about static electricity and maybe give them the odd shock as well.
Where are you from and what do you miss from home? I'm from a small town just outside Manchester, I don't really miss anything aside from my family who come from across the UK.
