    Nathalie Chevallier

    Teacher of MFL

    Nathalie Chevallier

    I am a French native speaker with a passion for languages. I studied English and American literature at university in Lyon, France. After graduating, I moved to Bristol, England, and did a teacher training course at Bristol University. I fell in love with England and lived there for the next 12 years. I taught Languages in schools in Bristol, Nottingham and Sherborne (Dorset). I took a year out in 2010 to teach French in the Alliance Française in Brisbane, Australia. There, I taught all ages, from four year olds to adults. It was a rewarding experience.

    My husband and I moved to Houston in April 2014 so we are very new to life in the US. I have always loved teaching languages and I am very excited to be part of the British International School of Houston, where languages are so highly regarded. I think that bringing culture into the classroom is an integral part of language learning and an essential part of High Performance Learning. I feel privileged to teach in such a successful school.

    Janine Healy

    Teacher of MFL

    Janine Healy

    Before coming to BISH I worked at a comprehensive school in South London where I had been teaching for four years. During my time there I lead and developed the Spanish curriculum, mentored students and trainee teachers and introduced a number of initiatives such as the Francovision song contest, various MFL spelling bees and a Korean language and culture club. I was also involved in implementing project based learning across the whole school which has allowed students to engage more with their learning and produce high quality products. I have relished the opportunity to be able to guide students to direct and perform a play, publish their own book, hold an art exhibition for the public and much more.

    Having trained as a Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages at the University of Exeter, I completed my teacher training at two schools in Weymouth, Dorset, UK. I then took up a position as a German and French teacher at Winterbourne International Academy in Bristol, UK in 2011. Teaching French and German to GCSE Level, as well as German A-level courses, I really enjoyed running a ‘Mandarin club’ on the side.  During my three years there, I specialized in teaching ‘Gifted and Talented’ students, the teaching of literacy and the development of the NVQ (national vocational qualifications) for languages.
