    Hi Everyone! I am Mark Thomas, born in Wales/UK but have also resided a number of years down under (Australia) where I also have Australian Citizenship. I began International teaching in New Zealand and then went back to Oz for a number of years before recommencing my International teaching career again in Indonesia. This is my third year at SCIS-Pudong where I have been teaching Design, Visual Art and also currently some Physical Education. These are all subject areas that I love and feel passionately about. What I love about SCIS is its diversity of students, the warmth of staff, the resources, facilities and the recent transition into being an IB Continuum School. Its been an exciting time the past 2 years and I am looking forward to my third year in this great school and city. Outside of school you will find me biking for fitness, socializing, scuba diving, drone flying and a swag of other things to long to mention.

    I am excited to begin my 3rd year at SCIS. I received my degree in elementary education at the University of Arizona in 2009 and my middle school math certificate in 2013. I previously taught in Arizona I the U.S. before moving internationally. This will be my 8th year teaching and I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. What can I say, I love middle schoolers! This year I will be teaching grade 7, 8 extended, and 9 mathematics. I am very excited to be here and take the opportunities to travel around and experience new cultures.
