    My name is Ricky Whitfield and I am teaching Grade 3 this year at the Hongqiao Campus. This is my first year at SCIS. I am from sunny Sydney, Australia. I am in my 12th year of teaching and most recently came from teaching in Hanoi, Vietnam. Having also taught in Europe, the Middle East and other parts of Asia. I graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) and then received my Bachelor of Teaching (Primary Education). I’m passionate about learning and right now I am trying to speak Mandarin! I spend my free time looking for vintage records and in book stores. I love pizza and spinach but not at the same time! A good weekend to me looks like Swing dancing Friday followed by a late-night pizza of course. If I can swim, run, work out, play tennis or squash or go on an epic bike ride then I’ve had a great weekend.
