    Christopher Thomas

    After completing my degree in journalism at the University of Essex, I spent a year in China working as a teaching assistant at the British School of Beijing. It was here that I quickly fell in love with educating and inspiring young people and decided upon a career in teaching. 

    I completed my PGCE through the University of Buckingham and worked as a teacher in Beijing for a further five years. After six amazing years in China, I wanted to explore another part of the world and so moved to the British College of Brazil.

    After qualifying with a Bachelor of Primary Education, I began my teaching career in a rural town in Far North Queensland, Australia. After completing my first year of teaching, I moved back to my hometown of Brisbane where I took on a number of teaching roles across Key Stage One and Two. Five years into my career, I decided that I was ready for a new and exciting challenge and combined my love of travel with my passion for teaching and found myself in an international school in Tianjin, China. In addition to my role as Year 1 Class Teacher, I was also a member of the Junior School Math Team and one of the very first Outdoor Ambassadors for the school.

    Year 4 Teacher & Assistant Maths Leader

    Timothy Hogg

    I grew up on the outskirts of South-East London and after completing an Undergraduate degree in International Politics and International History at University, I went travelling around Australia and South-East Asia for a year.  It was in Northern Thailand that I began teaching English as part of voluntary work for an NGO.  I found the experience rewarding and gained my PCGE in Primary Education.  I began my career at a school in England, where I was PE coordinator, responsible for overseeing the sports teams and implementing the new PE Curriculum.  After 3 years, the lure of travelling took me to teach in Qatar, where I gained a huge amount of experience working with children who often spoke English as a second language.
