    Pre-Nursery Teacher

    Therese Faerestrand

    My passion has always been working with children. I studied to be a Pre-School Teacher in Norway (2005-2008) before moving to Denmark where I worked as a teacher in a kindergarten. After seven years in Denmark, we moved to Shanghai because of my husband's work.

    It has always been my passion to work with children. To watch the children from when they are small and to see how they grow and learn, is a unique experience. In the classroom I am creative, spontaneous and strive to discover the individual needs of every child.
