    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.

    Christina Donelson

    I graduated from The University of Texas with a BFA in Technical Theatre Design in 1992. My professional Stage Management career started with Austin Lyric Opera. I then went on to work for Juilliard, The Metropolitan Opera, Walnut Street Theatre, The Opera Company of Philadelphia, Cleveland Opera, and The Opera Company of Charleston, West Virginia. Having grown tired of the cold Northern winters I went on to spend two seasons at the Palm Beach Opera and finally The San Francisco Opera where I had the opportunity to go out on a three month tour with the Merola Program’s Wester Opera Theatre as the Production Stage Manager.

    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.

    Victoria Henecka

    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.
