Emma came to Wellington College International Shanghai as head of Early Years and a reception class teacher when it first opened in August 2014. After that first year she became head of Pre-Prep and for the first time in her career moved out of the classroom. Although she may no longer have a class of students of her own, she feels incredibly fortunate to be looking after a whole school.
Emma started her teaching career in 2004 in Germany. She spent two years at a Service Children’s Education School in Hohne teaching years 5 and 6. She then returned to the UK to gain a wider range of teaching experiences, including three months in Ecuador helping set up a nursery. She settled in her home town of Leicester for seven years, where she worked in an outstanding inner city school.
Emma’s life has been in constant pursuit of engaging and exciting experiences, a chance to further her own knowledge and understanding, and share it with others. She hopes to bring her years of experience to Wellington and is keen to establish a world class Pre-Prep setting in Shanghai.
