I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Watford but after a school politics trip bought me to Washington last year I fell in love with the city so jumped at the opportunity to teach History in such an exciting place.
I’m an adventurous person (which I suppose you have to be to teach internationally!) and take every opportunity to travel and try new experiences. I’ve recently taken up learning Krav Maga and am enjoying the hiking and biking available in the local area. I enjoy keeping up to date with current affairs, visiting museums and exhibitions and the theatre, and leading an outdoor lifestyle, and Washington offers all of these things in abundance.
The thing that has struck me as unique about BISW is the approach to personalised learning. The smaller class sizes mean you can really get to know the students and their needs which allows you to tailor your lessons appropriately, and also enables you to do develop a relationship with your classes quickly.
