Victoria Henecka

Teacher of World Languages, German Programme Co-ordinator, Head of Middle School Years 8 & 9

Having trained as a Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages at the University of Exeter, I first spent 4 years working in the UK as a languages teacher at Winterbourne International Academy in Bristol, England and then at Alford Academy in Scotland, teaching Spanish in Middle School and French and German to GCSE Level, as well as German A-level/ or Higher and Standard courses. I also really enjoyed running a ‘Mandarin club’ on the side. I specialized in teaching ‘Gifted and Talented’ students, the teaching of literacy and the development of the NVQ (national vocational qualifications) for languages. I then came to BISH from Munich International School in Bavaria (Germany), where I taught German Language Acquisition for the MYP. I love teaching languages to students of all ages and I believe in making learning fun, exciting and challenging. As a Head of Year it is also very important to me to put the students at the center of all learning and teaching and of course care for their wellbeing.

With three nationalities and two mother tongues, I have always loved languages and traveling. My travels have taken me to many parts of Asia, some of Africa and also to Russia and of course many countries in Europe. I moved to Houston from Europe in August 2016. I love exploring the USA and especially the breathtaking national parks! There are so many beautiful states, with my two favourites being Alaska and Hawaii so far.  I love watersports, mountain biking, hiking, climbing and anything else outdoors. Every February I take a holiday to one of the US amazing ski resorts and if I have to spend time indoors, then I read or bake cakes.
