  • Peta Medcalf

    Head of Year 6, Class Teacher

    Peta Medcalf

    After completing my studies and working as a Secondary Music teacher, I moved to Dublin, and then London, where my love of Primary teaching blossomed. In West London, I worked in a wonderful primary school where I became passionate about project based learning. I eventually felt inspired to experience teaching in a new part of the world. An adventure to South East Asia called and I was delighted to join a fantastic school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In those 3+ years I have accepted many new challenges that have included leading Year 4 & 5 as a Head of Year, working with a Literacy Lead team to help improve reading across the school and coordinating the music program in Early Years. When considering my move to BISH, I was most excited about joining a school that celebrates creativity and making learning meaningful and authentic.

    Year 6 Teacher

    Paul Hazard

    I started teaching over fifteen years ago in London, England and I joined BISH from the International School of Bremen in Germany. During my career, my roles have included Head of House, Reading Programme Co-ordinator, PTA Secretary and I had a leadership role throughout the NEASC accreditation process here at BISH. I have developed a passionate interest in the use of metacognitive approaches to help students achieve a sense of security and confidence in themselves and their learning. The decision to come to BISH was an easy one. It was very clear that my approach to learning fit perfectly with the ambitions and core values of this amazing school.

    Primary Teacher

    Rebecca Tivey

    Growing up in Staffordshire, UK, I developed an early interest in languages, going on to study Russian and Latin at university. Learning languages has become a hobby and I can often be found on Duolingo. Alongside this, I am a lover of music and enjoy singing greatly, both as part of a choir and individually. I also enjoy travelling and take every opportunity to explore new countries. I am very much looking forward to exploring the USA further.
