Anna Vangel

Head of Lower Primary

Director of Curriculum Development & Year 2 Teacher

I began my teaching career in 1998 after  graduating from Newman College in Birmingham with a B.Ed with Honors in Geography. I then spent three years teaching in a Primary school in Macclesfield, Cheshire. During my third year, I decided I wanted to teach overseas so I joined the VIF program and taught Kindergarten in North Carolina. 

After my time overseas, I returned to the UK and taught in a Primary school in Congleton, Cheshire. In both UK schools I quickly became part of the school communities and was very involved in events with the school’s parent teacher association and leading curriculum areas, including Geography and Religious Education.

After working back in the UK I still wanted to work overseas and the British Schools of America appealed to me because it was a young group of growing schools. I wanted to be part of the team taking the schools forward.  I joined the BISB team in 2004 and have taught in Year 2, Year 1 and Reception.  I am also the Head of Lower Primary and a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

I live in the suburbs with my husband, Jeff, and two young sons.  I love spending time with my family, going hiking, trips to the beach, and reading books. I also enjoy tending to my garden growing flowers, vegetables and herbs.  

What makes BISB unique?

I believe that our students make the school unique.  The children are enthusiastic and motivated learners who are intrigued and inspired by what the school offers.  Over the years I have seen our school grow and develop into an educational leader in the area, and our internationalism is evident through the curricula and the children’s learning.  We nurture and guide our students so that they challenge themselves and take risks within a safe and supportive environment.
