I have spent most of my 16 years as a teacher in Beijing, a city that I love dearly. I have taught students ranging in abilities, from native to non native speakers, and ages ranging from 2 to 88 years old. However, it has been the last 11 years working in Early Childhood where I have found the most enjoyment, fulfilment and creativity.
I am a dedicated, innovative teacher who strives to provides a safe, caring and challenging student-centred learning environment. I believe that every child learns uniquely and ‘mistakes’ are steps on our path to knowledge.
I am also a mother of two young children which gives me the perspective of both parent and educator.
I am a lover of stories, people and art but my true love is travel. As a global citizen, I have spent my life dabbling in learning different languages. I have studied Greek, Italian, French and Chinese to varying degrees of proficiency. I love language and believe cultivating a love of books and stories is a fundamental way to impart language, spark imagination and build confidence in young learners.
