Dean completed a joint BA (Hons) degree in History and Education at the University of Northampton, UK in 2013. After travelling and working with children abroad, he attended Kingston University, UK to undertake a PGCE in Primary Teaching. Dean has spent the last two years working in a primary school in Surrey, where he has helped to develop the provision of PE within the school and increase participation in sporting activities.
He is of the firm belief that building positive relationships is vital to developing the perfect learning environment. He is relishing the opportunity to work at BISS Puxi and to live and experience a new and diverse culture in Shanghai.
Dean enjoys both playing and watching a wide range of sports, particularly football, skiing and cycling. He is an avid Fulham supporter and when in the UK, rarely misses a game. Dean has a keen interest in travelling, hoping to see as much of the world as possible, and he also enjoys live music. Another, quite unusual hobby of his, is whale watching.
