Beverley Hope

Language Teacher

MA(Hons) German, University of St Andrews 
Postgraduate MA European Studies, University of Cardiff 
PGDE Secondary, University of Edinburgh 

Beverley started teaching in 2012, following four years working in politics as an election campaign manager in her home city, Edinburgh.  Completing her NQT year in the Scottish Borders, she made the move overseas and has lived in Switzerland for seven years, teaching IB PYP, MYP and DP programmes.  For the past two years, she has also served as Head of Grade 9 (Year 8). 

Beverley has always had a curiosity for languages and revels in sharing her curiosity, making inquiries into both their commonalities and nuances.  Working in an international setting, she also enjoys helping students to make connections between the different languages they experience at home, in school and in their community.  She is a proponent of using authentic materials to make learning more meaningful and using a range of media, including films and podcasts, to enhance the student learning experience.  Beverley values the holistic interests and talents young people possess and finding ways to make learning relevant, and therefore more intrinsically motivating, to her students.  

An advocate of maintaining a work-life balance, Beverley enjoys running and hiking in her spare time.  She also enjoys baking and travelling to attend live sporting events. She is most ‘at home’ exploring the Scottish countryside with her Border Terrier, Ruby.
