OUR FUZHOU TEAM

Each of our schools are located within the city centre, so there is plenty to do and see whichever school you work at. While some are closer in location than others, none are too far away for a catch up with your coworkers from different schools. In fact, friendships form regardless of the school you work in due to the lively social scenes!

Meet the Academic Coordinators of each branch below. Each of our ACs come from a variety of backgrounds and each carry different professional experiences. One thing they all have in common is that they all started as teachers at York!

“My name’s Alden, I’m Canadian from the province of British Columbia. I’ve been working at York since August 2014. I enjoy running, diving and board games. As a quirky bit of trivia about myself; I was born a year, to the day, before the dissolution of the USSR”
