Having been in the field of education for almost 20 years, out of which 15 years has been at BSG, I feel my personal and professional journey has been interlinked with the growth of the school community. I hold a BA degree in Psychology and a MA degree in Early Childhood Education & Special Educational Needs (with teacher qualifications) from New York University. Upon graduating, I worked in a variety of settings that included local and international schools in the U.S., Guangzhou and Taiwan SAR.
I started my journey at BSG soon after my son was born, where two years later he joined the Pre-Nursery programme at our school — he’s now in Secondary! There’s been no looking back.
I fell in love with the school as both a parent and also member of staff, where a sense of continual ‘teaching and learning’ has been a highlight for me and has remained a constant throughout these years. My roles at BSG have comprised within Early Years as a Pre-Nursery Leader, and also as part of the Learning Support and Psychology Department.
I am currently also Assistant Head of Safeguarding, where I closely work with a team of DSLs to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of our students is a top priority. I now look forward to a new chapter at NAISGZ, where there are further opportunities of learning awaiting to be embraced. I believe that ‘change’ is not only inevitable, it is a stepping stone for fostering a sense of resilience and giving our students, even at the early stages, the tools they need to thrive in a global and dynamic world that we live in.
