I am delighted to be continuing my teaching journey as a teacher at BSB Sanlitun. My previous experience includes classroom teaching for 5 years in Shanghai and the U.K. and prior to that, EFL teaching in several countries.
I was born in Devon, England and lived there for most of my childhood although have also lived and attended school in Singapore. Additionally, I spent six months living in France as part of a language development/exchange programme. This has helped me to become culturally adaptable, resilient and aware of some of the challenges that pupils may face in various circumstances.
I have always been interested in how people learn and apply knowledge and enjoy seeing the excitement that children experience as they discover new knowledge and ways of expressing their thoughts. I believe that teaching is more than just imparting knowledge – it involves motivating learners to ask deep questions and creating a safe and stimulating environment, which allows deep thinking to happen.
When not working in school I enjoy travelling and sports such as running and playing squash.
