Edward Gent

EGE

Year 6 Teacher

I initially began working in education after graduating from Cambridge in 2014 – I worked as an English tutor for a family in Beijing and simultaneously volunteered at two international schools in the city, including another Nord Anglia School. On my return I carried out my PGCE at the University of Exeter before securing a job in a junior school near Nottingham.
I have been a Year 4 teacher at my current school for two years, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Alongside my role as a class teacher, I have also been involved in aspects of wider school life, such as running a Mandarin club and helping to run gardening and running clubs. 
I wanted to work in an international school even before applying for my PGCE and I was particularly attracted by the emphasis on respect, ambition and community at NAISAK. 

I grew up in on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England, which is an area full of history and beautiful countryside. It is hardly surprising then, that I count history, travel and photography among my main interests. I have been fortunate enough to visit several European countries, as well as the United States and China, and visiting historical landmarks is always top of the list. I also have a real interest in languages and etymology and so try to learn at least a few phrases that I can use when visiting somewhere new.  

NAISAK will be different to all other school I have worked at because I think that being part of a school that is so globally minded is really exciting and important, not only for the children, but for the staff as well. I am keen to be part of the community that produces a group of respectful and independent students.
