Joseph Gichana


Head of Humanities

After spending a year in Sales and Marketing, Joseph launched his teaching career in a community-funded Kenyan school before joining an international school in Nairobi. He taught A-level Economics and Business Studies for eight years at the school while also serving as a discipline proctor. The lure of teaching abroad was irresistible when an opportunity to teach at a middle school in Xi’an, China beckoned. With his young family trailing, the desire to join a dynamic multi-cultural community grew and, after two years in Xi’an, he joined NAIS Pudong in August 2009. Joseph is convinced that the school’s excellent learning environment adequately prepares our students to face the challenges of an ever changing global economy. He is always happy to put his 20 years of teaching for the benefit of his students and colleagues.

Joseph has a passion for nurturing young leaders as evident in his involvement in the Model United Nations programmes over the last twenty years. Currently, he serves as the UNICEF Lead at NAIS and is involved in preparing delegates for the annual NAE-UNICEF student summit in New York. Nord Anglia University recognised Joseph’s efforts and awarded him the Professional Development Award for Leadership.  He invests his time in his own continuous professional development and is a holder of an MBA degree from Tongji University as well as a PGCE from the University of Sunderland. Additionally, he is an IB Diploma Examiner for Economics Internal Assessment and Higher Level Paper 3 and has served as a co-tutor for the NAU TOK Facilitated Course.

In his spare time, Joseph loves to spend time with his family. He is a keen long distance runner with several half marathon medals and is busy training for a full marathon.
