Leanne Oh (Australia)


Grade 1 Teacher

Return to Profiles


My name is Leanne Oh. I was born, raised and educated in Australia, and am a Grade 1 teacher.

In 1996, I completed a Social Work degree with my career focusing on the needs of children and families across various communities. I was involved in creating and providing universal education campaigns to parents on child development, and writing resources for parents to use with their children.

In 2009, I moved to Hong Kong with my family. Since moving here, I have enjoyed the vibrancy of the city with the close proximity of nature hikes and beaches.

I was employed as an Early Childhood teacher prior to moving onto a Primary school setting. I have since completed my Masters of Teaching (Primary) through an Australian University and have enjoyed the opportunity to work at schools that are implementing the PYP. I believe that it’s important to nurture a child’s curiosity, and that learning needs to be meaningful and relevant to students lives both now and in the future.
