Jo-Ann Hall

Phase 3 Academic Leader, Year 4 Cranes Class Teacher

I came to BSB Sanlitun with 20 years teaching experience. I completed my Diploma of Teaching and Bachelor of Education in 1996. In April 2016 I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Applied Practice, Digital and Collaborative Learning. Prior to moving to Beijing, I have taught in a range of schools in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand. In New Zealand the majority of my career has been spent in Senior Leadership roles. My various roles and recent study have inspired me to become the reflective, passionate and committed educator I am today.

I continue to be drawn back to the classroom where real learning experiences can be felt. I strive to create a welcoming, safe and caring environment founded on the love of learning. For the past two years I have worked in a paperless classroom where devices were used 1-1. My love of learning is brought about from inquiry learning and design thinking. I thrive when working on STEM Projects, and collaborative learning is part of my everyday practice.

Teaching at an international school has been a personal goal. When a position at BSB Sanlitun became available, I saw an outstanding opportunity that could not be missed. Being part of the BSB Sanlitun team was the perfect fit not only for myself, but also my two children. I am excited about being part of a highly qualified teaching team, an ambitious ethos and a supportive school community.

What the students say

"Mrs Hall is a very independent/hard worker. She always goes out of her way to get the best out of her pupils and encourages them all to be good role models."

"I love the way how Mrs Hall teaches us. She is a kind, loving teacher. I don’t know how we could ever replace a woman like her. I will miss her and all the help she has given me."

"Mrs Hall will always help you when you are in need of help. She cares about her students no matter what, and encourages them to achieve their goals."
