Jenni Maris

Year 1 Teacher

In 2006 I  graduated from Dundee University, Scotland, with a Bachelor of Education degree in Primary Teaching. I taught in a Dundee primary school for a few years before making the decision to move to sunny Dubai. Whilst there, I taught at one of our sister schools, Nord Anglia International School Dubai and took on a role leading Innovation and Technology across the primary school. In 2018, we made the move to Boston, Massachusetts which gave me the fantastic opportunity to explore New England and experience the many different weathers it brings! As well as teaching in a Year 1 class in Boston, I led STEAM across the primary school. I love project-based learning and am always enthusiastic to implement innovative teaching ideas! I love seeing the progress children make on a day to day basis and watching that special moment when they learn something new. Having previously visited BISH, I am thrilled to be joining the team in Houston and being part of the vibrant school community. 

I have moved to Houston with my husband, David and we have a 4-year-old daughter, Mila, who is also extremely excited to have joined me at BISH! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family – Mila keeps me entertained with various art projects and exploring the outdoors.
