    I graduated in 2013 from Fairfield University with BA in English and Theater. I then continued my studies to receive my Masters in English Education in 2015. In the summer of 2017, I was graciously granted the opportunity to attend a course at Juilliard in accordance with their program through NAE. I learned key concepts that the program endorses throughout the Performing Arts, and how those concepts can be interwoven into other course subjects as well - such as creativity, engagement, and discovery based learning. Because of this amazing experience, I am a huge advocate for The Juilliard music curriculum at BISB.

    Dylan Censorio

    I graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelor of Science and a focus on teaching physical education and health education. Before graduating college, I completed my student teaching at two large middle and high schools in Manchester, New Hampshire. Shortly after graduation I moved to Boston where I landed my first teaching position at a private school called Buckingham, Browne and Nichols located in Cambridge, MA.

    Currently I am the Director of Athletics as well as the Head of Physical Education. As the Director of Athletics I schedule all middle school and high school athletic competitions, set up various extracurricular clubs for all ages and coach middle school basketball and middle and high school soccer. I have spent 2 seasons coaching the boys' middle school basketball team and high school soccer team and 1 season coaching the girls' middle school soccer team.

    Stephanie Minto

    Being born into a family of teachers, there really was only one route for me. After a year working as a polo groom and traveling to Argentina, I embarked on my degree course at Brunel University in London.  Four years later, I graduated with a degree in Secondary Education with Physical Education and settled in London.

    During the four summers at University, I worked in Michigan at a YMCA summer camp where I taught horseback riding, mentored the counselors in training, and coordinated all female staff and campers. I loved working in the great outdoors and thoroughly embraced the experience, especially learning to wakeboard and becoming a pro at building campfires.

    I have taught in both the state and independent sector in London and most recently left a post as Head of Department in a school in Kensington.  I love all sports, both to play and watch, and will turn my hand to any activity. I regularly played netball and competed at a high standard in London, but I have been known to play many other sports ranging from ultimate frisbee to skiing. I enjoy taking fitness classes, and at my previous school I ran an early morning boot camp session, which the students loved. Unfortunately, in order to move to Boston, I had to relinquish my much-loved Arsenal FC season ticket.  I am hoping to fill that void by watching all  the Boston sports (whilst keeping tabs on Arsenal as the season progresses!). I look forward to demonstrating my passion and drive for all things sport whilst encouraging and motivating others to find their passion in order to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. 

    I am enjoying my role as the Director of Student Welfare for Middle School students!

    After completing a BSc in Multimedia I went on to work in the radio industry as a web editor. After that I went into education. Last year I traveled to Singapore to look at the education system and report back to the British Schools Council about my findings. I have been a keen programmer in recent years and have enjoyed teaching pupils who have gone on to master their skills.
