Kristin Teeters

As an American parent of two BISW students for the past six years, it’s a privilege to also be a part of the BISW staff.  Having previously volunteered in many different areas of school life, I am well acquainted with the BISW community.  In my role as the school’s librarian, it is exciting to use these insights in working with the students and staff to support and enhance the educational aims and objectives of the school. 

With a BA in English from the University of Richmond, my background in advertising and marketing, and my love of books, I hope to increase the awareness of resources available in the library, and to help foster the joy of reading, for both pleasure and informational purposes. 

Outside of school life, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two sons, and am fortunate to have most of my extended family close by as well.  I enjoy being outside walking, biking, playing tennis, or spending time on the water.  I also enjoy cooking for my family and friends, and of course, reading! 

BISW is a unique school in the DC area.  The curriculum and overall approach to learning is challenging, yet individualized.  There is a genuine diversity amongst the students and all nationalities and cultures are celebrated.  Students, parents, and staff are all truly welcoming and recognize the special place that BISW is.  I am proud to be a part of BISW!
