I completed my CELTA qualification in 2014 and have been teaching EAL at the school since 2016. The learning environment at BSB Sanlitun is fantastic, with great topic based learning and a really positive rapport between teachers and pupils.
I have enjoyed a variety of roles at BSB Sanlitun from working as a Teaching Assistant with Year 4 to coaching our school sports teams at FOBISIA and advising prospective parents in Admissions.
Prior to working in China I spent 30 years working in senior management roles in the UK and, as I have always enjoyed learning, I undertook an MSc at Loughborough University graduating in 2008. I enjoyed my career in the UK however, when our two sons completed their university education in 2013, my wife and I decided it was the perfect time for a new adventure.
Outside of school I enjoy keeping fit; I play squash and swim regularly. I love having the opportunity and time to travel and explore new places both in China and abroad. Our sons still live and work in the UK. We miss them but they have encouraged our adventures!
