I am very excited to join the BSB Sanlitun team! I cannot wait to explore Beijing (and China!) and begin the next chapter of my adventure.
I was born and raised in the quiet suburbs of London, England. I grew up in a family of six where I was the eldest child. I was given the responsibility of caring for my siblings from a reasonably young age and I believe this led to my decision to become a teacher.
Outside of work, I am a keen sportsman. This year I have played for my local 11-a-side football team as well as playing 7-a-side regularly with work colleagues. I love all things technological and would be lost without my computer but I often give them all up to relax with a good book. I am an adventurous soul and have always wanted to see the world and I am very lucky to be able to travel.
What the students say
"Mr Burgess is a fair teacher."
"Mr Burgess is very funny, he can be silly in class but also serious. He makes learning fun!"
"Mr Burgess is an interesting teacher. I like to listen to his stories and he makes me feel like I am good at things."
