    Maths Teacher

    Rachael Anderson-Shore

    Having attended school in Worcester, England, I went on to study International Business, Finance and Economics as my degree at The University of Manchester. On completion of this, I embarked on the Graduate Teacher Program, which I completed in 2012 and then remained at my training school for the next seven years. Over the duration of my time there, I had a wide range of opportunities available to me which have continued to develop my subject pedagogy and allowed me to experience several different roles including Leader of Creative Curriculum and STEAM club coordinator. After having been accredited as a Lead Learning Practitioner in 2016, I went on to lead the Math faculty at a leading inner-city comprehensive school within a Multi Academy Trust.

    Head of Humanities

    Anna Bennett

    I have taught at BISH since 2007. I grew up in Exeter, Devon and loved it so much there I went to the University of Exeter where I obtained a BA Hons in Geography. Following that I went to the University of Bristol to undertake a PGCE in Humanities with Geography as my main subject.

    My main geographical interests are development and population studies and I was lucky enough to broaden my experience in this area in 2006 when I undertook a 2 week teacher study visit to India, teaching in under-privileged state schools and working with locals in a local village as well as completing a study to compare the level of development between the rural area and the nearest big city; Bangalore. I believe first hand experiences such as this are the best way for anyone to develop their understanding of different places, so my goal to develop the opportunity for students in BISH to have this kind of experience.

    I joined BISH in August 2011 as a History teacher and Extended Essay coordinator. I also teach another of my passions Economics at IB Diploma.

    I graduated from the University of Lancaster with an Honours Degree in History before studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in History and Citizenship. I became interested in the international education field following my involvement in the Comenius Project that works to bring young people together from all over the European Community in order to develop internationalism and multi-cultural understanding. One of the wonderful things about BISH is the opportunity to experience this daily!

    Teacher of Mathematics

    Harriet Bodkin

    I will be joining the British International School of Houston in my fifth year of teaching Mathematics, having had experience in teaching GCSE, A-Level and the Applications and Interpretation course at DP after completing my PGCE in Secondary Mathematics with Business Studies in 2017. Before pursuing my passion for teaching, I worked as a Marketing Executive for a finance company in Australia and an industrial lifting company in the UK. However, my early experiences of teaching ESL in South Korea after graduating from University in 2007 motivated me to move into the education field, and as such, has led me to where I am today, teaching internationally and due to complete my Masters in Education within a couple of months.

  • Victoria Bradbury at the British International School of Houston

    Victoria Bradbury

    Teacher of IBDP Psychology and Theory of Knowledge, iGCSE Soci...

    Victoria Bradbury

    BISH is my third IB school. I have previously taught at IB World Schools in Finland, and the UK, having started my teaching career at a typical English state school in the South West. I have previously been Head of Department, a leader in gamification in the classroom and flipped learning, and Extended Essay Coordinator. I also have a Masters in Educational Leadership and Management. I am also an IBDP Psychology examiner, and have been for some time. Moving into international education was a complete eye-opener for me; I really love the IB programme and am in awe of the students that complete it. It's tough! In all honesty, when I found BISH I wasn't even really looking to leave my previous school. But, I saw the job and thought I wanted to give it a go, and see where things went. As I got further along the process, I realised that BISH completely fit the bill for me, and, after my interview in London, I hoped that I was what they were looking for.

    After graduating with a B.A (Hons) in English in 2004, I was fortunate to move to the Bahamas at the beginning of 2005 to work with an events management company before taking a position in the business administration team with British Energy back in England in 2006. These years provided me with excellent opportunities to develop my communication and organisational skills and collaborate with diverse teams on fun and exciting projects.
