Julie Stevens

Specialist Teacher, EAL

I came to this school with my husband in 2008 when he took the post of Principal of the BISC. I began teaching in the school in 2009, responsible for children with EAL and in meeting children’s additional needs as part of personalised learning plans.  I started the 2 year old programme in the school and have taught in Early Years through to Key stage 2 covering maternity leaves.

I hold a first class Honours Bachelor of Education degree with Drama and a Masters in Special Education degree.

My background is in Special Education, having taught children from 5-16 years old for over 20 years in a variety of schools.  My most recent post before leaving the UK was working as part of a multidisciplinary team for an authority Behaviour and Mental Health service in an advisory capacity, with a responsibility for 15 schools. I have additional qualifications in basic counselling skills, bereavement counselling for children and teaching yoga for young children.

I believe in creating a nurturing environment where children feel safe and secure enabling them to develop sound friendships and positive self- esteem.  I inspire children to take risks, motivate them to challenge and reach for their personal goals and celebrate their own successes.

Having three children, a puppy and a cat, I don’t find that much time for hobbies but am an avid  runner having completed local 5K and 10K runs as well as encouraging our students in running club at school. I also enjoy theatre and have been an assistant director in all our Christmas productions at school.  My eldest daughter is at university of Wilmington. My son left the school managing A* in most of his GCSEs and now has progressed onto a successful IB programme. My daughter is currently in the middle school, loving the international aspect of our school, meeting a huge variety of friends and being a natural performer, has loved appearing in our musicals such as Wicked/Lion King and Shrek. I love living in Charlotte with my family especially for the weather!

This school is very unique in its warm, friendly, family environment that is so important when you are so far from home. The children who attend this school are happy and have truly individualised approaches to their learning.
