    Year 3 Teacher

    Angela Timms

    Angela completed a BEd from Nottingham University specialising in Early Years and has been a teacher for more than 30 years. During her long career, her teaching experience has covered every age group from pre- nursery through to Upper Key Stage 2 and she has taught in many different types of school across the UK. She feels that this range of experience gives her a great insight into the development of children and their individual needs. She has also worked as a Primary Languages consultant helping to train teachers in the methodology of teaching modern foreign languages.

     As a young teacher she always dreamt of working in an international setting. However, these plans were put on hold to raise her own children and she is therefore delighted to finally have the opportunity to fulfil this long held ambition by joining the team at BISS Puxi.

    Miss Cole is looking forward to coming to BISS as part of the Primary team this year and feels privileged to be working alongside outstanding colleagues to bring out the very best in every child. This will be her first year in Shanghai having previously taught in the UK and Dubai. She is looking forward to experiencing a new culture and country within a well-established, successful school.

     

    Miss Cole studied in the UK at the University of the West of England. Her degree was a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Primary Education, specializing in Mathematics and Science. However, she also has an underlying passion for Art and Design Technology. As a result of this, throughout her teaching career she has led these subjects throughout the whole school. This is a reflection of her passion for creativity within the primary curriculum. Furthermore, this drew her to teaching at BISS PUXI as it is an institution that promotes strong, holistic values for providing children with a joyful experience full of modern approaches to education combining innovative, creative teaching methods and advanced technological provisions.

     

    Miss Cole is excited to continue to provide an original, modern approach that will allow children to begin to take ownership of their knowledge and learning. Miss Cole’s teaching, based on a current, stimulating and exciting curriculum instils children with the open minds and knowledge they will need to make a positive contribution to society.
