David Downey

Year 4B Teacher

BA Hons

I completed my Bachelors in Education in London, gaining a First-Class Honours in Primary Education from the University of Roehampton. I then worked as a class teacher and as a Mathematics coordinator for five years in an Ofsted Outstanding UK Primary school.

In 2018 I decided to further enhance my teaching experiences and jumped at the opportunity to move to Shanghai. I have spent the last three years working as a Year 3 and 4 class teacher and I look forward to working alongside a great team of teachers and students at Britannica International School.

As a fully qualified primary school teacher, I am experienced in teaching all curriculum subjects. My specialism is language acquisition and mathematics. I have also taught philosophy to children both in London and more recently in Shanghai.

I hope to bring over a decade of experience to date, to inspire and develop our group of international students to become well-rounded independent learners, both academically and socially. My aim is to empower them to continue their eagerness for learning, to share and communicate their ideas in a collaborative environment.
