  • Sheree Brown

    Sheree Anne Brown

    Early Years Teacher

    Sheree Anne Brown

    Sheree Brown is from Australia and graduated with a Bachelor of Primary Education in Brisbane in 2005. She immediately fell in love with teaching abroad and moved to Beijing in 2006, as a Year 6 teacher. Since then Sheree has been back and forth teaching in China, Australia and Thailand from Year 6 to Reception and has some experience in SEN.
    During her career, she has worked her way into Early Years and has found how vital “play” is to all children! Young students are naturally curious and in a supportive and secure environment, they are able to inquire about the world and create links through their play. It is her passion, as a teacher, to nurture children in a physically and emotionally safe environment, which enables them to independently make links to a future that is still unpredicted.
