Assistant Head of English

Since successfully completing my Trinity Certification in TESOL, a Postgraduate Degree in Education through Nottingham University and the Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) programme through The Society for Education and Training (SET), I have been privileged to explore and appreciate a wide variety of different teaching environments. These experiences have been incredibly fascinating and also extremely rewarding.

I have gained an insight into different viewpoints and perspectives, which has enriched the learning process. Students from different cultures and backgrounds all learning together, contributing independent and unique ideas, is a tremendously satisfying and productive learning environment.

After 12 years of working as a Teacher of English Language and Literature in a variety of international settings, with my last three years in Qatar, I decided to further my professional career by joining a well-established and highly regarded international school. After much research, I found that The British School of Guangzhou had all the professional attributes and standards I sought within an educational establishment.

What initially impressed me about The British School of Guangzhou, apart from the outstanding facilities, are its core values which place a great emphasis upon a healthy lifestyle and caring for others. Instilling students with attributes such as open-mindedness, tolerance, respect, honesty and an enjoyment of life, are essential in preparing students for the future. I believe that BSG, truly is an innovative institution, producing young people with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of a fast developing world. I am enthused by the prospect of joining BSG, as it has a multi-national student body and would therefore allow me to continue contributing my skills and knowledge of teaching learners within an international setting.

Outside of work, the vast majority of my time is dedicated to my young family; nurturing their development and ensuring they utilize every available opportunity open to them. My hobbies include sports such as tennis, rugby, football, as well as going to the gym. I adore reading for pleasure and as an English teacher I advocate the latter to each and every one of my students.
