  • Molly Moffat

    Molly Moffat

    Juilliard Dance Lead

    Molly Moffat

    My name is Molly Moffat and I have a passion for teaching Key Stage 1 students. I began my journey to becoming a teacher at a small, private college in Minnesota, St. Olaf College. There I studied for a bachelor’s degree in Dance with a minor in Environmental Studies. From there I made a big move overseas to study for a master’s degree in English Literature at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. During that time, I volunteered at many local schools as a teaching assistant and a soccer coach. That’s when I made the decision to study for my Post Graduate Certificate of Education at Exeter University. I then went on to teach at Hillyfield Primary Academy in London, teaching in Year 1 and Year 2. During my time at that school, I completed an Outstanding teacher training course, was the leader for Special Educational Needs learning in Year 1 and was a coach in the Improving Teacher program. I also started a cheerleading program, the school’s first, and started directing school plays.

    I joined the British International School of Charlotte in 2013 as a Year 1 and 2 class teacher and have come to love working for the Nord Anglia family. During my time in Charlotte, I attended training at MIT help develop STEAM learning throughout the school. I really love the STEAM approach to learning and how it links subjects like Science, Art and Technology to provide cross-curricular learning experiences that are creative, engaging and memorable. I also attended training at The Juilliard School in preparation for developing and implementing the Juilliard curriculum for Dance at the Nord Anglia International School in New York. I also love all things theatrical, and have enjoyed developing and directing school plays for the younger-aged children at my school, with the Gruffalo Play being my absolute favorite!

Since completing her PGCE, Kat has worked in primary and secondary schools, specialising in English and Drama teaching. 

    Drama and the performing arts have always been a passion, and Kat has coordinated many productions in the settings she has worked in. Kat has introduced LAMDA speech and performance tuition to schools as well as inspiring a love of Shakespeare and performance poetry to all the children she teaches. Kat currently works at Bromsgrove International School in Thailand, where she is Head of English. She works hard to promote a kinaesthetic approach to teaching, as well as leading the progression of speaking and listening across the school. Outside of school, Kat loves reading, exploring new countries, SCUBA diving and, of course, going to the theatre. Kat is so excited to join the NAISNY family and looks forward to bringing her wealth of knowledge and love of performance to this amazing school.

  • Catherine Beckett

    Cathrine Beckett

    Juilliard Music Lead

    Cathrine Beckett

    Cathrine is a graduate of Canterbury College, University of Kent, with an honours degree in Music and Education. In her professional career, she has taught in a variety of schools around the UK including Cumbria, Devon and Kent. She has extensive experience in teaching pupils from the age of two to eighteen years. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than teaching music and making a difference in the musical lives of young and older children alike. It was whilst she was in Devon that she was invited to teach in a preparatory school, and it was here that she discovered her love for teaching toddlers and young children. When she was in Kent, she was asked to teach music therapy in a music hub. She found this to be a huge and highly rewarding privilege; one which has left a lasting effect on how she approaches music with children of all abilities.

    Cathrine derives great fulfilment when she is working with choirs and instrumental ensembles and she relishes any opportunity to provide experiences for students to perform in public and with live musicians. She is delighted to be joining the team at NAISNY, and looks forward to the exciting opportunities, which lie ahead of her in New York.
