    Maurice Fakoury

    Head of World Languages & IB Coordinator

    Maurice Fakoury

    Languages have been central to my upbringing, education and subsequent career choices, and have opened doors for me to a range of opportunities throughout my life. I have always considered a teaching career as my ultimate aim, but I felt that in order to become the type of teacher that I aspired to be, I would require experience outside of an academic environment before fulfilling that ambition.

    I was fortunate enough upon graduation from the University of Edinburgh to fall into my first career as an Expedition Manager and Leader with a Gap Year organization, and a tour manager for a boutique travel company in Europe. Thereafter, I became a journalist for a number of years, but eventually decided that the cut and thrust of Fleet Street was not for me.

    Teaching has provided me with a sense of purpose as well as satisfaction that I am contributing in a meaningful way. I relish the opportunities that are constantly presented in school life, as well as the chance to help young people broaden their own horizons. After a few years of teaching in London, my taste for adventure and desire to head overseas again led me to BISB.

    I graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelor of Science and a focus on teaching physical education and health education.

    Currently I am the Director of Athletics as well as the Head of Physical Education. As the Director of Athletics I schedule all middle school and high school athletic competitions, set up various extracurricular clubs for all ages and coach middle school basketball and middle and high school soccer.

    After completing a BSc in Multimedia I went on to work in the radio industry as a web editor. After that I went into education. Last year I traveled to Singapore to look at the education system and report back to the British Schools Council about my findings. I have been a keen programmer in recent years and have enjoyed teaching pupils who have gone on to master their skills.

    English as an Additional Language Teacher

    Susan Amestoy

    When my three daughters were all school age, I headed back to school at the University of Vermont to complete a Post Baccalaureate Certification Program in Elementary Education. I taught 5th and 6th grade in Vermont for five years, and then traveled with my family to Berlin, Germany to teach at the John F. Kennedy Schule. When I returned to the USA I wanted to gain more administrative experience, and took on the role as administrator and director for a Vermont, non-profit, after-school program. While working as director, I earned my TESL certification, and am thrilled to be back in an international school setting working to support EAL students.

    While working in Vermont and in Berlin I chaired several school committees in Math, English, and Student Support, and I am proud to be a licensed educator with HQT (Highly Qualified Teacher) Status.
