About Me

Hi and welcome to Miss Sharlene’s and Miss Karen’s Kindergarten classroom blog. We are excited to start the year with you and your child. Here’s a little information about both of us so you can get to know us a little bit before we start the school year.

Miss Sharlene,

I moved to Shekou two years ago, along with my husband who is the Director of Learning Innovation at SIS. This is our third year at S.I.S. We were previously teaching at the International School of Beijing for 12 years. I taught Early Childhood (4 year olds) and Kindergarten there. Both our children graduated from the International School of Beijing, have graduated from the University of British Columbia and are now working in Vancouver, Canada. Previously, we have taught in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. We love to ski, sail and spend time at the lake in Canada.


Miss Karen,

I have six years of experience working with kindergarten students. I have a seven year old son. He is going to Grade 2 at a local school this year.

I play pool with my son and friends once a week and we like to ride horses in Huizhou sometimes.
