Claire Behan

Eagles Class Teacher, Head of DUCKS Art

Claire graduated from the University of East London with a PGCE in Primary Education and was teaching Year 1 and Year 2 in an outstanding Infant School in East London for four years before she moved to China. While in London, she got to work with children from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures and gained great experience working with young children with English as an additional language. Her background in art and design has also been hugely beneficial and Claire enjoys using her creative skills to support the children’s learning and keep them engaged and motivated.

Originally from Tipperary in Southern Ireland, she is a long way from home but is really enjoying living in Suzhou and travelling around the many different parts of Asia. When she’s not exploring, Claire enjoys drawing, reading, running and tasting local cuisine! She loves learning about different cultures and is delighted to have this great opportunity to learn and practice Mandarin.
