NIS Podcast: New Primary Principal, Jacqui Patrick
Join us as we get to know Nanjing International School's new Primary Principal, Ms. Jacqui Patrick, including her background and teaching and leadership philosophy.
“Children are amazing. Their capacity to learn, and think, and create, and grow and experiment – it’s there. And we have to protect it, and we have to spark it, and we have to grow it.”
Ms. Patrick will be our new Primary Principal. She is presently Elementary Principal at an international school in Beijing. She has a Master of Teaching and a B.A. in Sociology both from the University of Sydney. Ms. Patrick has previously worked in IB schools in Suzhou, Nanjing, and Indonesia, including NIS. As an NIS alum, we are delighted to have Ms. Patrick back at our school. She will be joined by her partner Mr. Jamie Watson, who will teach at NIS. Ms. Patrick is Australian.
Nanjing International School is excited to welcome 18 new faculty into our inclusive learning community for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. This diverse, knowledgeable, and passionate group joins us across our Primary and Secondary school sections, with many exciting additions in counselling, learning support, and teaching in PYP, MYP, and the DP. These professionals complete our fully staffed faculty of 91 educators from 20 different nationalities for 2022-23.
