Primary Class Teacher

Elizabeth studied French at the University of Nottingham. After completing a PGCE in Primary MFL at the University of Durham, Elizabeth taught in Year 5 for two years in a challenging school in northern England. In 2006 Elizabeth moved to Shanghai with her husband Neil and worked for two years at Dulwich College, first in Year 4 and then as Year group leader in Year 3. In 2008 She returned to the U.K. and worked for a year before starting a family. After two years Elizabeth was keen to return to teaching and started working in her local school. Since then Elizabeth has worked in every year group and has loved being able to teach children across both key stages. Elizabeth currently works in Year 1 and teaches Spanish in KS2. She is very much looking forward to joining the team at BISS Puxi, meeting the children and their families and seeing how much Shanghai has changed.

Elizabeth loves teaching and strives to encourage children to develop a lifelong love of learning. She has high expectations of her pupils in terms of their behaviour and academic achievements whilst ensuring they can thrive in a safe and caring environment. 

Elizabeth loves spending time with her family and enjoys the outdoors despite the British weather! She likes to read, knit and is attempting to learn how to crochet. Elizabeth also loves travelling and learning about different places and cultures.
