As a teacher with 8 years of experience teaching a range of ages from 4 years to 7 years in International schools, I am excited about the opportunity to apply my skills in my new position as a Nursery teacher at BSB Sanlitun. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and obtained my Teaching License from Eastern University. Prior to teaching Year 1 and Reception for three years in Beijing, I spent five years teaching at International schools in the United Arab Emirates. Transitioning to Beijing was a new and exciting adventure for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
I spent the majority of my growing up years in several countries including Kenya and Ethiopia, which has shaped my passion for continuing my teaching experiences abroad. I remember spending time with our next-door neighbours in Ethiopia as a 6-year-old, doing my very best to ‘teach’ them English while playing ‘school’. It seems I have naturally entered into what I couldn’t have foreseen to be my lifelong passion! As I continue my teaching journey, I also enjoy hiking, writing, and singing in my spare time. I also love to travel, meeting new people and trying new things.
As an educator, I have a passion for making learning exciting, to stimulate a love for learning as I support young children’s early educational experiences. I believe that if I am having fun, so are my students! I enjoy implementing new ideas, researching and trying new teaching strategies, and above all, providing a warm and caring environment for my students. I am excited to see all that this year has in store.
