Erica Lee

Primary Teacher

Working at Bloom is my teacher's dream come true. This is without doubt, the best move I have made in my 18 year teaching career. At Bloom, we are pioneers in education. This is the way school should be. A strong emphasis is placed on our students' well-being and we follow a comprehensive curriculum for positive education which equips our students with the foundational skills they need to be happy, confident learners. Empathy is one of the many important character traits at Bloom and through projects focussed on service and sustainability, we are inspiring students to look outward, recognise problems and be the agents of change both internationally and in the local community. It is a privilege to be surrounded by like-minded professionals who are passionate about education and enabling all children to reach their potential. There are many opportunities to collaborate and co-teach and colleagues are given opportunities to learn from each other. The professional development is great and I have been able to refine my practice under the guidance of an in-house literacy specialist. After working at Bloom for a short time, my teacher's toolkit has grown in size. At Bloom, all teachers are lifelong learners which is what we aspire for our students to be.

Primary Teacher

The warm sense of community makes Bloom Academy a pleasant place to work at. The teachers I work with are kind, welcoming and  approachable. Professionals at Bloom Academy are like-minded and share similar progressive educational philosophies. They value hands-on experiential learning as much as literary creativity, and while nurturing the student as a whole-child, they make sure to meet students where they are in their learning journey through differentiation.

Megan Kwan-Nixon

Primary Teacher

When I moved to Hong Kong in the Fall of 2019, I didn’t expect to find a school here that aligned with my own educational philosophy. I was prepared to find myself conflicted by the traditional teaching philosophies that vastly differed from my own personal ideology, and I planned on going rogue in the classroom on my own. However, by sheer luck (or destiny!) I was introduced to Renée Boey, and my journey with Bloom Academy began.

I chose to become an educator at Bloom Academy because I wholeheartedly agree with the school’s philosophy. It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to build a school from the ground up: from establishing the school’s novel approach of holistic education, to envisioning the core values which we stand upon -- I am proud to be a part of Bloom Academy because it is the missing piece of education that Hong Kong needs.
