Originally from China, Pan is fluent in Mandarin and English. She has a passion for early years education and strongly believes in child-led learning, developing the whole person and looking after children’s individual needs, interests, abilities and strengths. With a multicultural background, she also believes that educators should help children to become international citizens with global awareness.
Pan is delighted to be teaching nursery at DCIS. In the classroom she creates a natural, warm and interesting environment in which the children are challenged, their learning is full of fun and each child has the opportunity to reach their potential.
Outside of school, Pan likes to travel, to experience different cultures and to try different kinds of sports. To keep fit, Pan enjoys taking part in local running events from 5km, 10km, half marathon and in 2010 even completed a 250km hike across the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. More recently, Pan has turned her hand to triathlon, engaging enthusiastically in several local sprint distance races. Pan believes that engaging in challenging sports is one of the best ways to strengthen one’s resilience, a lesson that to some extent carries over to the classroom and to the children’s mental and physical development.
Pan has a son who also attends Dover Court.
