    Year 2 Teacher, Head of Year 2

    Kirsty Burkhill

    I began my teaching career in September 2007, having graduated from The Bishop Grosseteste Teaching University with a 2:1 BA Hons in History and Education Studies as well as a PGCE. I have taught in three different schools during my time in the UK ranging from an inner city school with over 800 pupils on roll to a small village school with only 63 children on roll. I have been fortunate enough to experience many different CPD opportunities and as a result have recently completed my National Professional Qualification for Senior Leaders; a qualification which is well recognised in the UK for teachers aspiring to become deputy heads.

    Symeon Spooner

    In 2011, I graduated from the University of Greenwich with a Bachelor of Arts Drama degree. After graduating I volunteered in various schools for 18 months which is where I was inspired to work with children on a permanent basis. Following my passion, I became a Teaching Assistant and then went on to gain my Teachers Qualified Status in 2014, specialising in Mathematics.

    I have taught Key Stage one (KS1) and lower Key Stage two (KS2) in a London primary school. I also ran Drama afterschool clubs and was an instrumental part of the Maths Co-ordination team which reshaped the structure of teaching mathematics for young children in KS1.

    I joined The British School of Beijing in 2016 as a Year 2 teacher and the Maths Co-ordinator for Primary school. I have really enjoyed all of my experiences so far, and look forward to those still to come.

    I am keen to share my learning experiences with children across the world, particularly how fun and innovative you can become when leaning about numbers, which is why I have chosen to become part of the BSB family.
