Joseph launched his teaching career in a community-funded Kenyan school before joining an international school that followed the British National Curriculum in Nairobi. He spent eight years at the school serving as a valued member of the Business Studies department and 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.
Joseph has a passion for nurturing young leaders as evident in his involvement in the Global Young Leaders and Model United Nations programmes in our school. Nord Anglia University recognised Joseph’s efforts and awarded him the Professional Development Award for Leadership in 2013. He invests his time in his own continuous professional development having recently completed an MBA degree from Tongji University and is currently pursuing an online course at the University of Sunderland. Additionally, he is an IB Diploma Examiner for Economics Internal Assessment and Higher Level Paper 3 as well as a co-tutor for the NAU TOK Facilitated Course.
