    Head of Year 5 and Year 5 Teacher

    Tim Barnett

    With my father being a Youth Worker and councilor in my home town in Gloucestershire, England, I have had, and continue to have, a brilliant role model to follow. My mother also volunteered at the youth club and so I spent a large amount of my infancy and childhood at the various youth clubs. For the teenagers who attended, I became almost like a mascot as I travelled with the club members on various trips, sporting events and workshops. I was surrounded by such inspirational, caring, dedicated and compassionate people working with children and young adults that I too developed a passion for helping others. I would help out as much as I could and, as I got older, it was said that I was destined to be a teacher.

    Early Years Teacher

    Hob Boazman

    I grew up in America, and have always been drawn to working with children. I received my BA in Elementary Education and then my MA in Education - Early Childhood. I have worked in various Early Years Programs and Primary Schools for the past 20 years, as a Teacher and as an Administrator. Previous to BISH, I worked at a World IB school in Tortola, British Virgin Islands as a class teacher and held the position of Technology Instruction Teacher for all of Primary School. The opportunity to move to Katy and work at BISH was truly a blessing, as my wife and I had been displaced after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated our home and the BVI.

    Curriculum Leader and Year 5 Class Teacher

    Stephanie Clarke

    After completing my Biology degree and PGCE in 1999, I started teaching Year 1 and 2 in a rural village school near Bath. Being the oldest child of four, I always knew that I wanted to be  a teacher and I was very good at organising my siblings! During my time teaching in Bath, I met my husband David, and in 2001 I moved up to York. I taught in Selby, a larger inner city school, which was a great contrast to my previous school. After a year, we moved to Cheshire, North-West England, for David’s job. I taught Reception, Year 1 and 2, and took various management roles before being appointed Senior Teacher. My daughter, Annabel, was born in 2008 and shortly afterwards we relocated to London. 

    In London, I taught at a large Primary school in Claygate, in Years 1-6, and was appointed Assistant Head. In 2012 David’s job took us to The Hague, The Netherlands, where my son William was born. I taught at the International School, The Haagsche Schoolvereeniging, teaching different classes from Reception to Year 6. This was a great introduction to the IPC, International Primary Curriculum, and teaching international students from all over the world. In 2014 we moved to Houston,where I was excited to have the opportunity to teach at BISHouston. Now, I am looking forward to the exciting developments of the curriculum and teaching in our new location.
