With a background in education, special education, and leadership, I have taught everything from Early Years to University, along with everything in between. I have been involved with educational institutions for over 30 years and I love being in the classroom, writing curriculum, and developing leaders of all ages. I have been Head of Primary at the last three schools we have worked with, during which time I have be instrumental in designing EAL programmes and curriculum. I have also been teaching EAL both to individual learners and to groups of learners.
My husband and I both have been part of the Nord Anglia Education family while working at the British International School of Budapest and now here at the British International School of Houston. I am an International Baccalaureate (IB) workshop leader, a site visit validator for both the Council of International Schools and for the International Baccalaureate, and I am a certified workshop leader for Concept Based Learning.
Overall, I am a life-long learner, an inquirer, an avid reader, a risk-taker, a passionate international educator, and an amateur photographer. I love to be active in the outdoors, exploring new places, and spending time with my family. I have first-hand experience as a third culture child and as an English as an Additional Language learner, which helps me to empathize and design curriculum to meet the individual needs of our learners.
What the students say about me...
“Mrs. Boazman helps you in English and she makes games in English to help you.”
“I like when she (Mrs. Boazman) helps with other things even if it’s not about EAL.”
“You can learn and play at the same time.”
“She (Mrs. Boazman) is a good English teacher.”
This School is different to all others I have worked at because…
BISH is a wonderfully unique place to work because everything revolves around establishing a sense of community. For instance, consider the neighbourhoods, the BOMA, the Agora, and the collaborations occurring at all levels. Throughout the school all learners are encouraged to be open-minded, respectful, inquirers, and caring. Our community is warm, welcoming, and inclusive thus providing everyone a sense of belonging. We feel very grateful to be a part of such a phenomenal school community and have felt very welcomed and enveloped.
