Diane studied English Literature at Loughborough University. After she graduated, she moved to Wuhan, China, to teach a Grade 2 English class. She intended to stay there for one year but extended her placement as she thoroughly enjoyed living and teaching in China. After leaving Wuhan, Diane moved to London to train professionally as a teacher, completing her PGCE at Goldsmiths University.
Following her studies, Diane then worked at a school in Stoke Newington, Hackney, for five years, teaching Years 4, 5 and 6 and leading PSHE throughout the school for four years. Since coming to BISS Puxi, she has been a Year 2 teacher for a year and is looking forward to working more with the wonderfully ambitious children and families.
After previously living in China, Diane developed a passion for travel and adventure. She is currently enjoying travelling South East Asia and particularly likes learning about Chinese culture.
