Pleased to Meet You…Dan Shrewsbury

10 September 2014

This week we spoke to Dan Shrewsbury, Year 6 Class Teacher and Eco & Charity Coordinator, to find out a bit more about him.

How long have you been at BISS Puxi? I’ve been here 4 years now.

What do you enjoy most about working here? In general the children are totally awesome and last year my Under 19 football team were extremely committed. Great stuff.

What’s your favourite subject to teach to Year 6 and why? Humanities - history is simply fascinating and insightful. The kids love learning about how and why things happened in the past. And everyone should be interested in geography. Global issues, culture, travel. What's not to like? 

What do you love about living in China? Our apartment is amazing. Our dogs are cool. Our friends make my day. The climate is pretty darn good. Food and drink can be as cheap or expensive as you like. It’s never boring. Late evenings on the moped around Shanghai is difficult to beat.

What do you like to do in Shanghai at the weekends? Chill out, learn about golf, exercise, listen to music, BBQ, see mates. 

Where are you from and what do you miss most from home? I’m from Nottingham in the Midlands of the UK. I miss my mum’s cooking, long long sunsets, English cloud formations, inexpensive cheese and crackers, real fish and chips (of course), the allotment, friends and family.
