I moved to Beijing with my family in April 2013 and got to know the school by working as a supply teacher. I joined BSB in August 2013 as a teacher in Primary and have taught across the year groups.
I have a Bachelor of Education honours degree from De Montfort University. My early career was spent teaching across the primary age range in the UK. I was Science Coordinator, KS1 Leader and a member of the Senior Management Team in a large primary school at this time. More recently, I have worked for Private and Service Children’s Education schools in Cyprus.
In the UK and Cyprus I developed a special interest in working with children whose first language is not English. I enjoy the process of unlocking the language for these children and helping them to access the English Curriculum. I am passionate about enabling each child to enjoy reaching their individual potential and exploring their talents.
I live in Shunyi with my 2 children, both of whom attend BSB. I enjoy swimming and yoga. I spend school holidays visiting as much of China and it’s surrounding countries as I can.
