I qualified as a teacher in 2001 in the UK and worked for two years before starting my international teaching adventure.
During my career I have taught all primary age groups and led both curriculum subjects as well as pastoral teaching teams. As my career has progressed, I have developed a passion for the teaching and learning of younger children.
I previously worked in international schools in China, the US and the Middle East.
We are now returning to Beijing and are very excited about joining The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun. Our boys will join the primary school as they move ‘home’ to the city where they were born. I am delighted to be joining the Early Years team.
As a shy child, I disliked speaking in front of others and I overcame this through drama. I now use drama experiences for children in my class to encourage their speaking and listening skills. I continue this love of drama outside of school and have taken part in pantomimes and plays in all the countries I have lived in. I am hoping to continue this on our return to Beijing.
