PYP EAL Team Lead & Grade 5 EAL Teacher
Kate is originally from the U.K., but has a very international background having lived in Italy, Greece, United Arab Emirates and China. She did her degree at London University, her Master’s degree at Cambridge University and her teacher training at Surrey University.
Kate originally trained as a teacher of Latin and Ancient Greek, and taught Classics in a Middle and High School in the UK for five years. When she moved abroad, she did the Cambridge CELTA and started teaching English to students of all ages and levels. Kate also qualified as an examiner for all the Cambridge English exams and as an IELTS examiner. In recent years, she has worked mainly in language assessment.
Since moving to Shenzhen a few years ago, Kate has started working in international schools. Last year, she taught English to the French students who were once tied to ISNS.
She has two daughters, one of whom has already been a student at ISNS for some time. Kate is very excited about joining the staff at ISNS and teaching in the IB system.
