Qualifying in 2009, I’ve spent most of my time teaching Upper KS2 and KS3 in a UK and international setting. I feel this makes me an ideal fit with BSB Sanlitun’s Year 6, because I can prepare the children for the emotional and academic challenges of becoming seniors.
Career highlights include having worked at one of England’s outstanding special schools for two years, and helping move one of Abu Dhabi’s international schools from ‘adequate’ toward ‘outstanding’. I dream of a time when every child has the transferable skills needed to succeed in the twenty-first century.
Born and bred in Manchester, to a deeply divided family (containing both red and blue fans) I’m fascinated by history, which is what attracted me to China.
Hopefully I’ll be able to learn more about how the country has transformed itself over the last three decades, and visit all the ancient sites during my stay. I’m passionate about understanding autism, having supported summer schemes for children with complex needs. My personal motto is to ‘try anything once’, as it’s often what you don't do in life that you regret the most!
What the students say
“I like it when Mr Lee lets us work in teams, and show off what we’ve learnt at the end of the lesson. He gives out lots of prizes!”
“I enjoy being in Mr Lee’s class room, because there are lots of things to help us on the walls and in the trays. We can just go and help ourselves.”
“He loves dressing up and putting on funny voices. The best lessons are when he lets us be the teacher, and mark each other’s work.”
