    Maths Teacher

    Robert Ward-Penny

    I am really pleased to become a part of the British International School of Boston. I am joining the BISB team with over a decade's experience of secondary mathematics, having worked in the Midlands, London and at another school in the US. I've also taught in the PGCE and Masters-level mathematics education courses at the University of Warwick. I was awarded a PhD in Education in 2013, and have written widely on mathematics education for professional and academic audiences.

    Math Teacher

    Rachael Anderson-Shore

    Having attended school in Worcester England, I went on to study International Business, Finance and Economics for my degree at The University of Manchester. On completion of this, I embarked on the Graduate Teacher Program, which I completed in 2012 and then remained at my training school for the next seven years. At this point, I had a wide range of opportunities available to me which have continued to develop my subject pedagogy and allowed me to experience several different roles including Leader of Creative Curriculum. After having been accredited as a Lead Learning Practitioner in 2016, I went on to lead the Math faculty at a leading inner-city comprehensive school within a Multi Academy Trust.

    I am dedicated to delivering a stimulating and enjoyable learning experience to all students, drawing from a wealth of extended learning environments and enrichment activities, largely STEAM focused.  I believe that the learning journey is most effective when all students have a positive attitude towards learning. As teachers and professionals, it is our role to create that positive atmosphere which is conducive to the learning environment, enabling pupils to foster positive attitudes and curiosities.

    I have always aspired to work in the United States, since I would like to utilise and develop my skills and experience within differing educational and social cultures.  I am extremely interested and excited to be a part of what the British International School of Boston has to offer regarding the learning and teaching ethos that is fostered for the students, as well as the wider BISB family of staff and parents.

    The Boston area has been a real draw for me with its ease of access to several beautiful trails both for walking (as I have three English cocker spaniels who have joined us over here) and skiing. I love to be outdoors and thoroughly enjoy fitness and running. I am hoping to take part in the Boston Marathon, having previously run the London Marathon for charity on three occasions.

    I graduated university with a degree in Biological and Biochemical Sciences, and then a PGCE in Secondary Science.  In the UK, I taught Biology and Science in a number of schools, eventually becoming Head of Science in a small school in Worcestershire. 

    In 2005, my family and I made the decision to apply for an overseas job. Initially we thought we would stay for two years and then move on. Nine years later we are still here at BISB.

    Head of History

    William Mitchell

    As a passionate historian, I have enjoyed seeing history and geopolitics in action in a variety of professional environments. Before training as a teacher at the University of Bristol, I acted as a visitor manager for a 15th century castle in the Cotswolds. In addition, my training as a Royal Naval Officer gave me insight into the role and impact of the military. I enjoy working as part of an international team.

    I have been teaching history to 11 to 18 year olds for 10 years in the UK and United States. I decided to join the British International School of Boston due to the strong focus on history in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. I'm pleased to say that so far 100 percent of students have elected to study history when the choice was given, with many going on to select it as a topic for Higher Level study during the IBDP.
