After studying for four years at Leeds Beckett University, Francesca graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Primary Education, fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Having spent three years teaching in Years 4 and 5 and becoming a PSHE Co-Ordinator, Francesca decided to pursue her ambition of teaching internationally. In 2018, Francesca made the move to Shanghai, where she taught a wonderful class of Reception aged children, in an international preschool. Here, she developed a passion for working with much younger children and furthered her understanding of the importance of the EYFS. Many of the lifelong learning skills promoted in the Early Years, mirrors Francesca’s own philosophy and is also reflected in the Be Ambitious ethos of BISS Puxi. Francesca is very much looking forward to working and learning alongside the many different families within the BISS community, as well as her extremely talented colleagues.
