    Katarina Horvathova Bratova

    Since I was a kid, I always wanted to be a teacher.  I accomplished it by combining both devotion and my love for the foreign languages. I finished my Master degree in teaching of French, Spanish and Slovak language. I feel very lucky being able to spend some time abroad both in France and Spain, improving my language skills.

    I worked as a teacher in several language schools and also in the American school in Bratislava. In BISB I will be teaching French and Slovak cultural studies.

    I worked as a qualified Civil and Structural engineer for over 10 years on railway infrastructure and multi-million pound commercial and residential projects all over the UK.

    I gained my PGCE with Birmingham City University and started my career as a Mathematics teacher in the UK teaching in a state school and later at a private boys’ school.

    I began my international career in Egypt 2014, in an International School in Cairo. I spent two further years teaching Maths and Physics at the International British School of Alexandria.

    I decided to apply to BISB in 2017 because a colleague, and former employee of BISB, gave a stunning endorsement of the school, its staff and especially its students.
