Danielle Hawkins read geography at Plymouth University and completed her PGCE at the University of West of England. Danielle has previously worked in a school in Wiltshire where she assisted the department in gaining the Geography Quality Award.
Danielle was attracted to Shanghai and Wellington College by the opportunity to work with a diversity of pupils to enhance geography and help create truly global citizens as she will be teaching pupils who will shape the future of this dynamic leading global power. In addition, Danielle believes the opportunity to work in China is a dream come true for a geographer, as we are living in a case study.
Danielle previously competed to a high level in both netball and swimming and looks forward to becoming involved with both these sports at Wellington College, Shanghai.
