    Year 1 Teacher

    Christopher Eales

    Christopher has been working in Primary and Early Years education in China for over nine years and he is looking forward to working at BISS Puxi. He previously managed a kindergarten, later moving on to concurrently manage a training centre, and as someone who continually wanted to improve and develop as a teacher, his move to a Nord Anglia school in Guangzhou six years ago was an obvious choice. Christopher is delighted to have been given the opportunity to stay within the Nord Anglia family here in Shanghai, as he feels that not only do they exhibit a high level of professionalism throughout the family of schools, but their dedication to teacher development and their ambitious approach to education are second to none.
