Gillian Vierstraete

Year 4 Teacher

Ms Vierstraete has over 12 years teaching experience across a range of year groups and within varied UK and International Private Schools. Ms Vierstraete's has taught both British and IB PYP curriculums.

After taking some time out to pursue my ambition to write a children’s novel, I have been invited back to BIS Abu Dhabi to teach Year 4 which I am really looking forward to. BIS Abu Dhabi is a unique place to work because we continually strive to seize the day!  This is reflected in the curriculum, CCA’s, performances, sporting fixtures, relationships with each other and our self-development. 

Growing up in South Africa gave me a passion for travel, experiencing new and exciting places and learning about cultures from around the world.  I love the outdoors, whether it involves hiking, scuba diving or snowboarding and sharing these activities with family and friends makes them even more memorable.  When I’m not busy outdoors, I love to read and it is this which motivates my ambition to write a children’s novel, the current skeleton is still a work in progress!
