Katherine Wilson

Lead Teacher of Biology and Year 12 Form Tutor

I have been teaching students from Year 7-13 in Science and Biology for 19 years.  I initially taught in state schools in the UK before moving to The British International School of Shanghai, China.  I spent six years there before moving to The British International School of Houston last year.  I specialise in teaching Post 16 students and am currently working with classes working on the IB Biology, A Level Biology and BTEC Sports Science courses.  I have had experience in pastoral leadership as I was a Head of Year and Head of House for six years in my time in the UK.

I live in Houston with my husband and two children.  We enjoy doing things together as a family and particularly love to travel and experience new places and cultures.  I like reading, cooking and skiing and I enjoy watching films. 

What the students say about me

“Mrs Wilson really understands how we all learn in different ways and always wants to make sure we have the resources we need to further our learning. She always ensures us that if we need anything, she is available and there to help. She always makes the lessons interesting for us by giving us a question at the start, and challenges us to find an answer by the end of the class which really gets us thinking and interested.” 

'Mrs Wilson is an amazing teacher! She is extremely reliable and is always there if I need any help. I’m so lucky to have her as my Extended Essay tutor as I know that if I ever need any help, she’s more than willing to sit down and go through it with me. It’s so great having a teacher that I can truly depend on! ‘

"Mrs Wilson is a very understanding and enthusiastic teacher, who ensures we know the content thoroughly and makes learning Biology a lot less stressful- which is extremely helpful when you're taking the IB!"

“I believe Mrs Wilson understands how different students work in different ways, is always trying different teaching methods for us to understand better and she is really patient which always helps students who haven't studied the subject before (like me!)”

This school is different to all others I've worked at because...

The British International School of Houston is a unique place to work, now more than ever!  The facilities are fantastic but more importantly the emphasis on collaborative learning between our staff and students truly enables us to help to develop students that will be our world’s future leaders.
