I started my career in education by training to work in full time day care until I had my own children. I returned to education as a mature student to obtain my teaching degree from Goldsmiths University and then taught Reception and Year One for ten years in an Inner London primary school.
In 1998 I made the decision to leave England and teach overseas. My first contract was in Egypt, just outside Cairo, in a four form entry school teaching Nursery and I had such a great time that I stayed for five years moving to teach Reception and Year One. My second contract was also in Egypt but this time in a much bigger school, still teaching in Early Years but with more responsibility. I loved teaching and living in Egypt but my family circumstances have changed and I want to be closer to my grandchild who lives in Australia.
China and BSB Shunyi offer me the opportunity to experience a new country and culture that I have wanted to explore as well as being able to visit my family more often.
