Hello, my name is Miss Manning! I graduated from St Mary’s University Twickenham in 2010 with a BA honours in Primary Education, and have been teaching ever since. Over the course of my teaching career, I have worked hard to explore as many areas in primary education as possible. In my first school, I quickly progressed into curriculum leaderships roles in Physical Education, Writing, and then, into a Senior Leadership role as a Phase leader. I also became a lead Team Teacher, where I actively supported the development of Newly Qualified Teachers.
In 2016 I moved to Beijing to teach, and to undertake a position as ‘Academic Supervisor’ in a school that focused on supporting children and adults who were EAL learners. During my time in Beijing, I had become very aware of the high reputation that The British School of Beijing Shunyi held, and decided that I would like to continue my teaching career there. I am very excited to begin my new chapter at BSB Shunyi.
I am blessed with many hobbies and interests. For example reading, film and cooking (as well as a slight obsession with Harry Potter). Another one of my interests is sport. I love watching sport and am a keen runner. I really enjoy travelling and experiencing new places. Different cultures really interest me, and throughout the different places I have visited across the globe, I have always tried to find out as much about the history and culture as possible. I will always try always impress my friends and family by cooking dishes from the places I have visted. My friends in China will tell you how much I enjoy hosting hot pot parties at my hutong (with the help of my French bulldog, Bane).
