Nicholas Scherf 2021–22

Communications Coordinator

Nick supports the development and implementation of communications initiatives at BISW.

As a communications specialist, I have had the pleasure of working in educational publishing and business marketing around the world. My background includes business management and work in blogging, social media marketing, and editing for various news outlets.

Some of my past projects include the development of academic materials, such as English Language Arts textbooks. I have also collaborated on multimedia language-learning software lessons and international standardized tests.

Originally from the Midwest, I am excited to join the British International School of Washington after having lived in South Korea, Brazil, and the southern United States. In those places, international school communities welcomed me with open arms, and I am ready to help the BISW family in the same way.

In my spare time, I like to train for marathons, learn about pet nutrition, spend time with my bulldog mix, and read fiction.
