As a life-long learner, I aim to provide children with a valuable and positive learning journey whereby they can feel safe, successful and reach their full, academic potential through a variety of strategies. I wanted to teach from the age of 5. My inspiration was my Year 1 teacher. She was creative, kind, bubbly, approachable, learning focused and catered for my very kinaesthetic learning style. I aim to provide children with a creative, cooperative approach to teaching and learning. I see ideas in children’s needs and interests and use the ideas to create fun, challenging learning with many ‘magic moments’. Accepting a job at the British International School of Houston was a very exciting opportunity and I have never looked back.
Teaching is my life but I have a number of hobbies that I enjoy. I love to visit new places, read books, eat delicious food at nice restaurants, go to see shows and swim. During the month of February I can usually be found fitting into Texan life at the rodeo. It is incredible. Spending valuable time with my Mum, sister and friends is my favourite thing in the world so I enjoy seeing them during my summer holidays. I love butterflies, the colour purple, live music, the sun, my friends, family, freesia and the seaside. I am very approachable, think that teaching is the most fulfilling job in the world and adore the children, families and staff community at the British International School of Houston.
What the students say about me...
“Everyone knows that Miss Williamson loves the colour purple."
“Miss Williamson loves learning and children."
