Jason Dawson

A staff profile picture

Year 4 Teacher

I graduated from the University of Central England in Birmingham with a BA (Hons) in Primary Education in 1996. I taught Year 1 and 2 for two years at Benson Community School in Birmingham before moving to teach Year 1, Year 3, Year 5 for eight years at Courthouse Green Primary School. In 2002, I took part in a one year Fulbright teacher exchange, teaching 3rd Grade at Sarah Winnemucca Elementary School in Reno, Nevada, USA.

In 2006, I moved to Boston to join the British International School of Boston. During my eight years at BSB I have taught Year 2, Year 5 and am currently teaching Year 4. During my teaching career I have held the posts of ICT Subject leader and Key Stage 1 coordinator.  At BISB I have held the posts of ICT subject leader and ‘webmaster’. I am currently the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) subject leader.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and during the past 10 years have travelled to 49 of the states in the USA. During my travels I have managed to visit every MLB baseball stadium but of course Fenway Park is my favorite! I am also a member of The Footlight Club theater in Boston. I help out in operating sound for productions and running the theater box office. 

What students say about me

"I like Mr. Dawson because he makes me laugh."

"I like doing our team games and challenges like Scrabble and Boggle."

"I like Mr. Dawson because he helps me with my learning."

what makes this school different

BISB is different because it offers children a broad curriculum that develops an international perspective to their learning.
