Susan qualified from the University of Paisley, Scotland as a primary teacher in June 2005. Since then she has taught mainly in the Early Years setting in Scotland. In August 2013, Susan moved to Spain where she taught for one year as an Early Years teacher. This gave her valuable experience of working with EAL children. In August 2014, Susan moved to Egypt where she taught a Reception class for one and a half years. She decided to move to Shanghai with her family because she wanted to teach in a Nord Anglia school and BISS Puxi looks like a wonderful community to be a part of.
