Diane studied English Literature at Loughborough University. After she graduated, she moved to Wuhan, China, to teach a Grade 2 English class. She intended to stay there for one year but extended her placement as she thoroughly enjoyed living and teaching in China. After leaving Wuhan, Diane moved to London to train professionally as a teacher, completing her PGCE at Goldsmiths University. She then worked at a school in Stoke Newington, Hackney, for five years, teaching Years 4, 5 and 6 and leading PSHE throughout the school for four years. Diane has been a Year 2 teacher at BISS Puxi for a year and is looking forward to working with ambitious children and families.
