Stacey Crump

Head of Lower Primary and Student Leadership; Year 2

During my time studying psychology at the University of Hertfordshire I developed a passion for how children learn and develop, even though my dissertation was based around the psychology of music. This passion naturally led me into working with children. I returned to university to gain my PGCE in Primary Education and taught in Hertfordshire before moving to DC. During my time at this school I was Head of Literacy and Upper Key Stage 2 leader.



During my time at this school I was Head of Literacy and Upper Key Stage 2 leader. I took the decision to teach at British International School of Washington after visiting the East Coast in the summer of 2013. I enjoyed my experience in DC and the surrounding areas so much that when I came across the British International School of Washington I knew that my life was going to take an exciting turn.

Having the opportunity to teach and live in America has opened my eyes to a wealth of exciting opportunities! Travelling, hiking and exploring are among my favourite things to do of a weekend and school holiday. I am a big sports fan and have played football (or should I say soccer!) for many years, having played for West Ham Ladies and represented my county for numerous seasons. Since moving to America I have become a big baseball and American football fan, taking advantage of living close to both stadiums. Although I do not play soccer competitively anymore, I coach the girls varsity soccer team and play flag American football outside of school. I enjoy reading and aspire to be a children’s author at some point in my life.

My students have said:

  • "Miss Crump always tells use to look for clues and use what we know to help."
  • “I enjoy thinking time because we link lots of different things together.”
  • “Miss Crump likes it when we give our best and when we make mistakes and learn from them.”

I am enjoying the opportunity to work in such a culturally rich environment where I can learn something new about a country, religion or language daily. The International Primary Curriculum promotes many life-long learning traits and develops the children’s ability to learn as part of a group successfully. Discussing and thinking about our learning is valued and promoted here at BISW to ensure each child is as successful as possible.
