Alexander is driven by his motivation to instil his love of literature, alongside reading and writing in general, into his students. He achieves success by enthusing his students to explore a wide variety of texts from across the world and ages. He is most fulfilled when he can see that he has inspired his students to embark on a path to become highly independent, enquiring and critical thinkers. Alexander is incredibly excited about the move to teach in an international school and is very much looking forward to meeting all of his new students at BISS Puxi.
Alexander and his wife Rosemary both love to travel and explore new places with their two sons, and they particularly enjoy sampling local cuisines. They have been fortunate enough to make the most of their long summer breaks as teachers to travel to most European countries, South-East Asia and Australia. Alexander is also an avid outdoor sports fan; enjoying windsurfing, running and has previously competed at regional level in cycling, sometimes without crashing! He loves to read, immersing himself in books from as many subjects, eras and genres as possible.
