Kate Du

Chinese Teacher

I graduated from Shandong University of Technology in 2004 with a degree in Musicology and teaching certificate. I began my teaching career in Wuhan at the ShuiGuoHu Middle School where I taught music. I also managed the Student Affairs Office, working with top students at the school and overseeing teaching standards. Though at times incredibly challenging, I enjoyed helping students thrive in the arts and hone a sharper appreciation for music and dance.

From 2006 to 2009 I volunteered as an art and social studies teacher at the Zhuzhen Middle School in Xiaogan where I worked with underprivileged children under a Hubei Educational Department programme aimed toward raising education levels in underserved villages. I worked with large class sizes and individual students. I choreographed an impressive sporting demonstration with over 1000 students and supervised morning physical education as well as teaching a range of subjects.

In 2010 I moved to Beijing to realise my dream of teaching Chinese language to foreign students, and quickly fell in love with the city and the job. During that time, I pursued a graduate degree in modern dance, graduating with a Masters in Dance Theory from the China National Academy of Arts in 2016. During my study in Beijing, I wrote for Guojiadajuyuan Magazine and worked as a part-time Chinese teacher.

I began working at The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun as a teaching assistant in 2017. I quickly grew fond of the working environment and am excited by the continuing education opportunities. My experience here has broadened my understanding of and appreciation for education and likewise I try hard to be a positive, kind and energetic part of each child’s education. I’m as happy as ever to be a Chinese language teacher here at BSB Sanlitun.

In my free time I enjoy weekend trips out of the city with my husband and our four-year-old son camping, hiking and exploring new places. I also love to dance!
