Catherine Valencia

Lower Early Years Leader & Pre-Nursery Teacher

Over 20 years ago I completed my Bachelor of Education in the UK specialising in Primary Education. During my long and varied career I have taught in every age group from Pre-Nursey to Year 6, these experiences have made me realise that I am   passionate about Early years Education.  I have worked in a variety of different schools based in the UK and overseas in countries such as Colombia, UAE, Jordan, Qatar and China. I feel that this wide range of experience gives me a great insight into how children learn.  I have spent the last 5 years working back in the UK and began to miss the excitement that international schools bring, having previously worked for Nord Anglia in Shanghai I knew that I would love to return to China and I jumped at the chance to come to Guangzhou.

I am a committed and patient teacher who enjoys playing a role in the development of young minds.  I enjoy encouraging pupils to be creative and curious about the world we live in and I believe that BSG will be an ideal place to continue to develop my career. I will be moving to Guangzhou with my husband and son, who will be joining the Secondary school. We are keen travellers and love exploring the world around us and new cultures.  We can’t wait to find out more about Guangzhou and are looking forward to exploring the sights.
