Mitra grew up and was educated in Toronto, Canada. Seven years ago her family moved from Beijing to Suzhou, and they have enjoyed the change of pace and the new environment Suzhou has to offer.
This is Mitra's sixth year at the College. Aside from completing her PGCE with the University of Sunderland, Mitra has held various teaching positions, completed numerous training courses focusing on teaching English as an Additional Language and taught children in diverse settings in South America, China and Canada for nearly 20 years. Assisting children to develop their English is one of Mitra's passions.
In her spare time Mitra enjoys reading, listening to music, going on long walks and spending time with her family. She also enjoys travelling and learning about new cultures. One of her long-term goals is to become fluent in the Chinese language before leaving China.
