Alison Yeardley

Year 4 Teacher

I graduated from Bishop Grosseteste in 1999, with a BA (Hons) Geography and Teaching Studies, with QTS. After teaching in and around my home town of Sheffield, I spent a summer at UC Berkeley studying Psychology.

I settled back in Sheffield and taught at Nook Lane Junior School for 4 years. I became interested in international teaching and the British Schools of America (as they were then known) appealed to me greatly. Turning down an opportunity to teach in North Carolina, I moved to Houston, TX to work at the British School of Houston. After 2 weeks there I knew I would be an international teacher forever. I applied to move to Boston and have been here for 6 years now.

Philosophy for Children

In school, I have a keen interest in PSHCE and am working hard to implement mindfulness in the classroom this year. I am always ready to share my learning and increase my professional development and I earned the NAE Professional Development award for Innovation.

Outside of school, I am a volunteer for Comfort Zone Camp – a bereavement camp for children who have lost a loved one. I am a member of their volunteer council and am actively involved in their community. I also study philosophy and help to run a philosophical meet-up group. I have a keen interest in dance and have studied ballet since I was 5 years old.

What do you feel makes BISB unique?

The students make BISB the best place I have ever worked. They are open, honest, hard-working and eager to learn. They ask great questions and are always ready for a challenge. World peace exists – I see it every day in my classroom.
