When I learned there was a British School in Houston, my interest was sparked. Having visited family in Houston for many years, I already knew I loved the city. When an Early Years job became available I really did everything I could to get it. Six months after my interview I was sitting on a plane headed for Texas and have never looked back.
When I am not teaching I like to feed my adventurous spirit by travelling, especially road trips. I love music and as well as playing piano, I also love to watch live music and go to festivals. I enjoy spending time outdoors and while I am no expert in any, I enjoy running, cycling and playing tennis.
What the students say about me...
"Miss Dickson is very nice and very kind because she helps us if we get stuck."
"She teaches us new things and does nice writing."
"She does lots of fun things and we she takes us to do our learning all over the school."
"She gets me the things I need and takes us on trips."
"She teaches us phonics and how to know the letters and write them."
"When I go home I talk about Miss Dickson."
"She smiles all the time."
This school is different to all others I have worked at because…
I like the international aspect and that everyone, the children, the families and staff, all bring something different to the school.
