Meet our Teacher - Mr. George Shoesmith, Biology & Science Teacher

“My ambition is to help our students define their own discovery of the natural world in the hope they are inspired to preserve its beauty for later generations. BVIS students have an enthusiasm for wildlife coupled with their commitment to academic excellence - harder each day" said  Mr George Shoesmith, Biology & Science Teacher

Born and raised in East London, Mr George Shoesmith travelled to Vietnam in 2011 and was originally an EAL teacher at BVIS until 2015. Returning to his home country to pursue further qualifications and gain his full teaching qualifications, George gained his early years of experience teaching science in reputable UK schools, before returning to his beloved BVIS as a Secondary Biology and Science teacher - he now calls Vietnam his home. 

Innovating, active and wholeheartedly dedicated, BVIS is a unique learning environment that holds a special place in George’s heart where the curiosity, creativity and enthusiasm of students drive his passion for teaching. 

Thanks to a teaching career marked by a tenacious desire to share, innovate and enlighten the knowledge, George well respected by his students. With his warmth and intelligence, George inspires BVIS students by bringing learning beyond the walls of the classroom in many of his meaningful community projects, with an emphasis on the natural world.  

“Humorous. Professional. Caring. 

If any 3 words can describe Mr. Shoesmith, those would definitely be the 3 words. I've had the absolute  

privilege of working with him for 2 consecutive years in the Student Council and those 2 years contained some of my best experiences. Under his tutelage, I was able to navigate through hardships and overcome them, as well as learning about how to plan, organise, and execute events.  

For the sake of simplicity, let's just say that Mr. Shoesmith is one of the best teachers not only at BVIS but also those who I've learn from. His contribution to the BVIS community is monumental and I hope to continue to collaborate with him in the future!”

#Beinspired #the BVISway 

A good teacher can develop the way a student sees the world, but a great one can inspire them to change it.  

As a Nord Anglia Education school, we search tirelessly to find exceptional teachers committed to creating global change-makers. In collaboration with world-leading institutions, our educators bring the finest learning techniques to their classroom, ensuring a unique approach for each student to discover and chase their ambitions.  

Some see this as the secret of our success. We like to think of it as the #BVISWay.
