Mollie Moffet

Kindergarten / Year 1 Teacher

I completed a bachelor’s degree in Dance at St. Olaf College in Minnesota and a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in English Literature at the University of Aberdeen. After that, I completed a Post Graduate Certificate of Education at Exeter University from 2008-2009. I then went on to teach at Hillyfield Primary Academy spending two years in Year 1, then two years in Year 2. During that time, I completed an Outstanding teacher training course, was the leader for Special Educational Needs learning in Year 1 and was the subject leader for Geography across the school.

I joined the British International School of Charlotte in 2013 to be the Year 1 class teacher. After living in the United Kingdom for 10 years, I wanted to move back to the USA so that I could be closer to my family. BASC presented me with the ideal opportunity of being able to move back to the USA while still teaching the British National Curriculum that I know and love. In the last year, I have been an assistant director of the Lower School production ‘A Tale of Toto’ and I have been the subject champion for dance.

In the last year, I have married my long-term partner Duncan, moved to the USA and adopted a rambunctious black lab we named Angus. Life has been very busy and very exciting. In my free time, I like to hike, look for new cultural experiences in the Charlotte area, dance, sing and exercise!

I love the small class sizes at BISC. I can spend extra teaching time with each student, be more flexible and creative in my teaching and tailor the learning to each child individually. This really impacts on the progress the children make! I also love teaching the British Curriculum. Rather than the linear system taught in American public schools where skills are taught once and then ticked off a list, the British Curriculum allows for skills to be revisited each term. This ensures children apply and build on their previous knowledge without forgetting what they’ve already learned. I also love the topic-based learning of the International Primary Curriculum. This allows for children to have a main idea to hang their new knowledge and experiences upon. At BISC, children have a deeper, more meaningful learning experience that they will never forget!
