Eleanor Bram at the British International School of Houston

Teacher of Mathematics & Year 10 Form Tutor

I came to teaching after starting out with the intention of becoming an actuary. I studied at the London School of Economics, where I gained my BSc in Actuarial Science in 2004 and began my professional actuarial training working in Group Risk for a large bank. Deciding it wasn’t for me, and having dipped my toe into the water of teaching while in Hong Kong for a few months, I made the move into teaching in the UK in 2012, gaining my QTS while teaching GCSE and A level maths. In 2014, I took a post at a school offering the IB DP, where I taught HL maths for four years, alongside GCSE. In 2017, I began a Master’s in Mathematics Education which I am due to complete next year and, as part of an interest in how the IB’s MYP prepares students for DP, I’ve spent the last six months teaching in Sweden.

The USA has been a little bit of a second home for me over the last 15 years, with a lot of time spent at a family home in Florida or travelling between the east and west coast. I’ve never been to Texas, though, and I’m looking forward to everything that Houston has to offer!

Coming from South Wales, where I live close to the Brecon Beacons, I’ve spent many a Sunday morning on Pen-y-Fan and have undertaken charity climbs on the 3 Peaks. I love horse riding and have already been researching some riding weekends around Houston, as well as the best places to eat in town. Yoga is also a passion of mine and in 2016 I completed a ‘yoga and mindfulness for teenagers’ teaching course. Applying this has helped students, and me, get some much-needed down time after a long school day and hopefully I can bring some of this to BISH. Being part of what looks like an incredible community there is exciting.
