Before joining BIS Houston, I have worked as an accountant in an insurance company in Sydney, Australia. I obtained my Bachelor of Business Administration degree while in India. Thereafter, went on to study in Australia and completed Masters in Professional Accounting.
Shortly after moving to Houston in 2016, I began volunteering at BIS Houston and soon became increasingly interested in becoming a teacher. As a parent volunteer I was supporting students who were mainly non-English speakers. Supporting them was a privilege because I could contribute positively and make a difference in their learning and understanding.
Since 2017, I have been a part of the EAL team at the prestigious British International School of Houston teaching English to non-native speakers. I have a TEFL-Teaching English as a Foreign Language certification as well as an EAL certification from the Nord Anglia University.
My name is Shweta Mehta and I am originally from India. In 2016, I moved to Houston with my family. Since, my husband works for an oil and gas company we have had the opportunity to live in different countries around the world (Australia, England, Ghana, USA). We have our two children studying at BIS Houston. As a family, we enjoy travelling and playing tennis.
