Therese Faerestrand


Pre-Nursery Teacher

Therese is a qualified Early Years teacher from Norway. She has been working at BISS Puxi since 2018 and has thoroughly enjoyed every minute of her time here. In 2008, Therese graduated from Volda University majoring in Early Years Education. Before relocating to China in 2015, she worked as an Early Years teacher in Denmark between 2008 and 2015.

Therese has a real passion for working with young children. She enjoys supporting them and seeing them become confident and independent learners. Therese firmly believes that ‘environment is the third teacher’ and she is wonderfully creative. One of Therese’s many strengths is creating an exciting, fun and inviting learning environment which caters for the children’s individual needs.

During her spare time, Therese loves playing tennis, going for long walks and spending time with her husband and two boys.
