Thomas Wood

Year 2 Alligators Class Teacher

I first came to Beijing in 2009 as part of a British Council scholarship programme, the Prime Minister’s Global Fellowship. The trip started an interest in China that I am still pursuing. Ten years later, I am extremely excited to be returning to Beijing to start the next chapter of my Chinese life at BSB Sanlitun.

I studied history at the University of Sheffield and graduated in 2012. After I graduated I started my teaching career working as an English Language Assistant at a secondary school in Chongqing, which solidified my interest in teaching as well as in Chinese history and culture. It also gave me a love of spicy food! After I returned to the UK, I worked as a secondary teaching assistant for children with special educational needs, an extremely rewarding role, before making the decision to train as a primary school teacher. Since completing my PGCE at Sheffield Hallam University I have been working as a Year 2 teacher at a large school in Sheffield.

I am looking forward to hiking in the mountains around Beijing. I play Badminton and I practise the Japanese martial art, Shotokan aikido. I plan to join a local judo club in Beijing. I support Liverpool Football Club and I’m looking forward to watching Beijing Guo An. I am also an avid reader.
