SAIE > Educators

At SAIE, we have an experienced team of foreign teachers. Most of them come from the United States, France, Italy and other European and American countries, bringing not only authentic American education to students, but also a global cultural background to our students, in order to let them experience the exchange and integration of different cultures in the world while sitting the classroom. We also has a dedicated team of Chinese teachers, who have sentiments of education. They graduated from top universities at home and abroad, such as the University of Hong Kong, Peking University, University of Leeds, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Tufts University, and most of them possess a master degree or above. Owning both growth and learning background in China and overseas study experience, they bring both a sense of patriotism and international view to our students.


Subject : Chemistry

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Analytical Chemistry with Quality Assurance from Munster Technological University, Cork, Ireland.

I arrived in China from Australian 4 years ago. I am a mother to a13 year old girl, who is in year 7 at SAIE. She has been homeschooled (I taught her privately) from when she was 6 years old  up until now, so this is a new and exciting experience for her. I have had two main jobs in my life, one is a teacher (I have been teaching for over 20 years) and the other is a geologist. I have taught ELA, ESL and science in kindergarten, primary, middle school, high school and university in Japan, China and Australia. I have also homeschooled/worldschooled my daughter for 5 years. I have an ‘A’ grade 150 hour Master TEFL-TESL Certificate, a Geoscience degree, and a grade 2 Japanese language proficiency certificate (second highest level). I worked as a teacher for many years in Japan. I returned to Australia where I was working as a scientist and I was teaching science to primary children. I love teaching and I believe that children should be taught in a loving, caring, engaging environment. They should be given a voice and a say in class. Everybody learns differently and that should be accounted for in class as everyone should be given a chance to learn. Everybody can learn it is just finding that special path that leads to the opening of your mind.

Afra got her master degree in education from Chinese University of Hong Kong and have her bachelor degrees respectively in Philosophy from Huazhong University of Science and Technology and psychology from Central China Normal University. She holds a national psychological consultant qualification certificate, a senior high school teacher qualification certification and AP psychology teaching certificate issued by the College Board.

Teaching philosophy: The short-term objective of learning is to adapt the changes of environment, and the long-term objective is to master people’s own life. This rapidly changing era has presented unprecedented challenges to education and study. Hence, a teacher’s duty is not only to impart knowledge, but also to train students’ abilities of distinguishing, thinking, application and affiliation, helping them develop their ideal personality. Also, a teacher should teach by personal examples as well as verbal instruction, setting a life-long learning example for students.
