Before starting university, I worked at The British School of Beijing as a Teaching Assistant. Here, I not only developed a keen interest in education, but also thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in a completely new culture and seeing amazing parts of the world. I returned to England to complete a Bachelors Degree, followed by a PGCert in Education Practice. In the following year, I became a qualified teacher when I completed a PGDip in Primary teaching.
After this, I took on my first international teaching post in São Paulo, Brazil. It was great to live in South America and I was lucky enough to visit some breathtaking places, including the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands. After my experience as a Teaching Assistant in Beijing, I had always wanted to return to China and decided that The British School of Guangzhou was where I wanted the next adventure to take place. I have now been teaching at BSG for 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I feel incredibly privileged to be a primary teacher and take pride in creating an inclusive, safe, inspiring and exciting learning environment for the children I work with to become confident, resilient and ambitious learners.
In my spare time I enjoy swimming, running, and when possible, snowboarding. When travelling, I love nothing more than hiking to secluded beaches and getting lost in a good book. I am enthusiastic about photography and wildlife, and enjoy snapping amazing animals in their natural habitats. I live here with my wife and my two dogs, Pepper and Tilly. We can often be found on long walks or enjoying delicious food. I love living in Guangzhou and can’t wait to continue exploring more of China and the rest of Asia.
