    My name is Carol Cayford and I am excited to have recently joined the faculty at SCIS - HIS to teach IBDP Literature and MYP Language & Literature. I already love Shanghai for a variety of reasons - sidewalks being one of them - and will appreciate a change in seasons again after two years teaching at the International School of Phnom Penh in Cambodia! I have been a teacher for over 30 years and during my career have been fortunate to have lived and worked in places as diverse as Sierra Leone, Qatar, Uzbekistan, Taiwan, Colombia, Canada and the UK. I am from Ontario, Canada, where I obtained a B.A. in English from McMaster University and a B.Ed. from Queen’s University, and I also have an M.A. from Michigan State University. My pastimes are not unusual for a woman with my history - I love to travel and read literature, but I also enjoy walking, skiing and horseback riding. I am looking forward to a productive year at SCIS, and to some adventurous travel in China this year!
