Staff Profile: Sue Beeston

Sue Beeston World Languages Teacher

Deputy Leader of World Languages

I have taught  at the British International School of Houston since 2008. I have been teaching languages for over 25 years in various countries including; England, Venezuela and the US. After obtaining my BA Hons degree in Modern Languages and studying at the universities in Bordeaux, France and Granada, Spain, I completed my PGCE at Swansea University in Wales. During my teaching time in England I was responsible for the teaching and learning of Spanish across the school and for Differentiation throughout the Languages Department.

As well as teaching in the education system I have also taught EAL to business professionals in the Oil and Gas industry here in Houston. While living in Chicago I was very involved in the Home Schooling Programme and played a vital role in the local school district’s Strategic Planning Process.

I love teaching and I am passionate about making language learning exciting and accessible to all students and take great pride in creating a lively, stimulating learning environment in my classroom.

Outside of school I enjoy a variety of activities including; reading, going to concerts, sewing and knitting. I love to travel and experience different cultures. I am very interested in Egyptology and have been fortunate to have visited many historical sites in Egypt.

What the students say about me

“Mrs Beeston makes Spanish a lesson to look forward to, as well as being an amazing teacher. She has a wonderful personality, always making our class laugh.”

“Spanish would not be Spanish without Mrs Beeston.”

“Mrs Beeston is a very good teacher. She is also very kind and understanding.”

“Mrs Beeston is an all-round, fabulously fun teacher! She is loving and caring to everyone.”

This school is different to all others I have worked at because…

The students are all amazing here and there is a real nurturing atmosphere. We all care about each other.
