Chris Skerry

Humanities Teacher

I studied History at Swansea University and, afterwards, completed a PGCE at the Old College, Aberystwyth University. Training at rural high schools in Builth Wells and Carmarthen, I had a firm foundation of how to engage and enthuse students to succeed in their studies. I then started my career at a Catholic Middle School in Oxford, teaching Year 5 to Year 8 students, before the school amalgamated with a High School to create a brand new Catholic Comprehensive educating all ages 3-18 years old. After 16 years of teaching Secondary students in Oxford, where I progressively held the responsibilities of Head of Year 9, Head of History and Head of Humanities, I moved into International Education as a Humanities teacher at BIS Houston in 2017. Here, I have taught History, Geography and Business Management to Secondary students and helped them to attain excellent grades in their IGCSE, IB and BTEC courses.

As a South Walian, from the rugby town of Neath, I am a huge fan of the Six Nations tournament and have completely convinced my non-Welsh wife to support Wales. We got married at 17:17 on 1/7/17 in St. Giles Church, Oxford, so I have absolutely no excuse to forget such a memorable time and date. As a historian, I have a lifelong love of learning about the past and often purchase WW1, WW2 and Korean War love-letters in online auctions to use as historical artifacts in class. I enjoy playing chess and walking but, when it comes to working out, I definitely prefer a sit-down to a sit-up. A very happy home-owner in Houston these days, I look forward to making even more great memories in the years to come.
