Alfred Creissen

Year 1 Teacher

Alfred Creissen

BA (Hons), PGCE, MA

Alfred has been studying and working in Early Years and Key Stage 1 for the past ten years. Having completed his degree in Early Childhood Education the UK, he took up the post of nursery teacher at NAIS Pudong. After a successful post in Shanghai, he joined the NAE school in Warsaw, Poland, as a nursery teacher and Early Years Coordinator. This role gave Alfred a greater understanding of how children learn through the different stages, whilst allowing him to develop his leadership skills. After his time in Warsaw, Alfred took on the role of reception teacher and High Performance Learning Leader at The British School of Guangzhou. 

Alfred believes in children using outdoor areas as part of their learning experience, using real life objects to discover and become inquisitive learners. He strongly believes in our school’s ‘Be ambitious’ approach; never giving up and continually trying to become the best we can be.

Alfred continues to enjoy travelling the globe in search of exciting experiences. He joined BISS Puxi in 2021, accompanied by his wife Victoria, a speech and language therapist, and his daughters. He plays golf, even though he is nowhere near as good as he would like to be. Alfred can now make a very simple loaf of bread after many baking disasters and he enjoys extending his baking skills. He is also in the process of learning Mandarin, which is proving to be an exciting jouney.
