Mr. Timothy Jones

History Teacher
Brazil, São Paulo

After completing A-Levels in History, Politics, English Language and Media Studies in my local secondary school in Worcestershire, England, I moved to work as an English teacher in a university in Vietnam and later a dairy farm in Australia. This move had a profound influence on my life and aspirations. Returning to the UK I began studying a degree in History focussing on modern political and economic history, mostly specialising in the British Empire and the Soviet Union. Whilst studying my undergraduate degree, I also began studying film theory. For my dissertation I used depictions of The Great War in film as a lens through which to study political developments in the Soviet Union. After graduating in History I moved to study a course in Development Studies for a masters degree, with the view to work in the field in Southeast Asia. My specialisms were Southeast Asian development with Thai language and rural/agricultural development . I worked with a group of grassroots NGOs in Thailand to conduct research into the impacts of hydroelectric dam construction on the Mekong River on the livelihoods of riparian communities. Having sated my interest in field work, I returned to the UK to work for NGOs. I found myself doing school engagement work and quickly fell in love with being in the classroom. I managed to secure a position on the Teach First training scheme and studied a History PGCE through UCL’s Institute of Education. My passion for pedagogy and education was ignited and I have worked as Head of History in schools in London’s East End. I am currently the Head of Humanities at BCB.

I love to learn and this has led me to postgraduate education, I am currently studying my second masters degree. I read non-fiction, almost exclusively. My areas of interest are currently the development of civilizations; sustainable economic development and zero growth economies; conquest and liberation of South America; intercultural education and post-colonial theory.
