Since graduating, I have taught for over two years in Year 5 at a school in Milton Keynes graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. I also have experience working as a Supply Teacher at a wide range of schools in the local area. During this time, I gained a valuable insight into the different approaches and strategies used in each school and, consequently, I believe that this experience greatly benefited my current teaching practice. Keen to return to teaching internationally in Asia, it was during this time that I was able to study and achieve a CELTA qualification in Oxford - something that I feel will benefit my students at The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun.
In my spare time I enjoy singing in a choir, drawing cartoons and learning Japanese. I also enjoy spending time in the c ountryside and exploring new places, a little off the beaten track. I am very excited to have the opportunity to take up a post at BSB Sanlitun and whilst here, I hope to learn more about its rich culture and language.
What the students say
"Miss Atkins will always help and encourage us when we are stuck. She is a caring teacher who makes time to listen to us when we have problems and helps us find solutions."
"Miss Atkins is very fair and we are always treated equally."
"I like how Miss Atkins breaks things down to make things easier to understand in Maths."
