Mr Kearns has taught English for over long years now and has thoroughly enjoyed working at a diverse range of schools. Previously, he worked at a multicultural institution with many students having English as a second language and greatly valued the experience it gave him, working in a challenging teaching environment. Before teaching, however, Mr Kearns embarked on a career in law, working at various firms, but ultimately changing his career direction when he realised his love of language could be best utilised in education.
Mr Kearns took the decision to come to The British International School Budapest after visiting the city whilst travelling around Europe. Aesthetically, he fell in love with the long boulevards, vibrant café culture and thriving arts scene. Thus his love of the city, coupled with an agreeable education ethos expounded by the school, prompted him to apply for a position at our school, which he still feels privileged to do today.
Mr Kearns is a keen sportsman and participates in a variety of sports, a notable one being road running which he finds incredibly cathartic. Music also plays an important role in his life, as he enjoys playing guitar, listening to an eclectic mix of music and attending concerts. Reading is a passion he has enjoyed since childhood and would name Jack Kerouac and George Orwell as two of his favourite authors.
