I am a UK qualified, and internationally minded, Secondary English Teacher that is passionate about teaching and learning. I began my teaching career in Manchester, in the North of England, as a School Sports Coordinator for Wythenshawe and South Manchester. After three years in this role, I followed my passion for English and completed a PGCE in Secondary English. I remained in the UK for my formative teaching years before working internationally in Cairo and more recently Singapore. During my career, I have worked with a variety of children and I love the challenge of engaging, inspiring and supporting all of the children I work with to become the best they can be in all facets.
During my time in the UK, I participated on a selective national leadership course where I had the opportunity to work with and observe a number of outstanding school leaders, from different parts of the UK. I always give 100% and I enjoy the challenge of stretching myself by taking on additional responsibilities. The roles I have held include Head of Department, Key Stage Leader, Subject-Mentor, Cambridge International Examinations Officer and Timetable Coordinator. The variety of these roles highlight my versatility, my willingness to challenge myself and my commitment to contribute to my school, as both a teacher and a leader.
I am happily married to Natasha, who is also a teacher, and we have two amazing children. They are a huge reason for us to leave the relative comfort of the UK and live and work abroad. Our desire to see our children grow up to be fully rounded and active global citizens has taken us to some truly amazing places and we are delighted that Katy, Texas is our next destination. We have been fortunate to be able to work in two of the best international schools in South East Asia and the opportunities our children have had because of this, have been truly phenomenal. We are all so excited to be able to build upon this further by immersing ourselves in all that the BISH and wider Texan community have to offer.
What the students say about me
“Mr. Kane gives us the confidence to make mistakes in class so that we can learn from them.”
“I like how you will put our work on the projector or write your own work on there so that we can talk about it and learn how we can make it better.”
“Mr Kane's feedback is always helpful, he makes sure we thoroughly understand the topic before he lets us complete the task.”
