SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM


Angela
Fairs Principal

I feel very privileged to be the Founding Principal at BBIS and after almost 20 years in British and International schools, fully believe in the power of smaller international schools like ours, to enable students and teachers to achieve more than they think they can.
 
I am committed to nurturing self confident, globally-minded students, with mindsets for success. My vocation and calling is international education, although I started my educational career in London, and held leadership positions at the prestigious Alleyns School, Dulwich, London, before moving to become Head of Primary at Dover Court International School in Singapore. I spent many happy years in leadership and education in South East Asia, at Stamford American International School in Singapore and Jerudong International School in Brunei, on the island of Borneo. During my career I have led and taught in schools across a range of curriculums, including the British National Curriculum, IBO (PYP and MYP), IPC (International Primary Curriculum) as well as the American Common Core curriculum. As well as a passionate educator, I am also a very proud mum of three grown up children. Charlie, 24, is a designer in his final university year in London; Imogen, 22, graduated from UMASS this year with a degree in journalism and Lily, 18, is at the Institue of Arts in Barcelona, studying for a degree in Musical Theatre. My children all experienced international education as students, and I am convinced it gave them the confidence, and success, they all have today! My passion lies in helping children, of all ages, achieve more than they think they can. I believe every child has a unique talent and it is our job, as teachers and educators, to give children the self -confidence and skills to be able to try new things, and develop a life- long passion for learning.

Jonathan
Spinks Deputy Principal, Head of Performing Arts

In my opinion teaching is still the best job in the world and I believe passionately in inspiring students, not just academically, but personally, socially and also to make a difference in the world.  
I have been in education now for just over 20 years and  started my teaching career in Poland. I have since worked in the UK and other international schools in Budapest and Bali. I have a wide range of experience in teaching and leadership across the entire 4-18 age range. Having spent the majority of my career in larger schools it is very refreshing to be part of a school with such a supportive family atmosphere that can truly offer a personalised approach for its students. It is both exciting and rewarding to work in an ambitious and growing school and play a leading role in ensuring a relevant, creative and engaging 21st century learning experience for all our students. As someone who strongly believes that the Performing Arts has an important role to play in developing the whole child that fact that BBIS values and places an emphasis on arts across the curriculum is another strong reason for loving working here. Aside from teaching I am kept very busy by my two children. Music is a big part of my life and I have been involved as singer-songwriter with various bands in Budapest and am currently playing in a cover band.

Petra

I studied at international schools throughout my childhood, at the British International School of Budapest( BISB) in primary, and at the American International School ( AISB) for high school and IB diploma. Having had those experiences I fell in love with the International school models, and it was a dream to open a school which combines all yet keeps the small family atmosphere.
 
I completed my double major in international relations and psychology at Vienna American University. After this I then gained an MBA at Oxford Brooks University. Later I continued at a Doctoral school in Budapest.
I have two children Laura and Peter, who both proudly and happily study at BBIS.

Gary
Brandon Director of Studies, 6MB

Originating from a small seaside town called Margate in Southern England, I graduated with a degree in Marketing from the University of Newcastle. However, my life changed when I gained a TEFL qualification and moved to South Korea to teach English as a foreign language.
Since then, I have also taught in Czechia, Qatar and of course, Hungary. I obtained my PGCE from Sunderland University, in the UK, and have happily been involved in Primary teaching ever since. This journey has given me 10 years of teaching experience.
Whilst continuing to teach, I have embraced my management responsibilities and I work with all the academic staff at BBIS to develop the teaching and learning across the school. Within my role as Director of Studies, I seek to ensure worthwhile assessment of students takes place to inform and progress learning.
Above all else, I like to see children enjoying every day of school, leaving each day with new knowledge instilled in them.
If I’m not teaching I spend my time doing anything artistic or constructing something around my home, playing or watching football and cricket, playing darts or choosing the next place I can explore on holiday.
A couple of interesting facts about me are that I have gone cage diving with great white sharks and I have ridden an ostrich.

Vera
Buzek1VB, Learning Support

I started my university years at the University of Szeged with a BA in English-German Studies, after which I graduated from the University of Eötvös Loránd with a degree in Special Educational Needs.

I am from Budapest, but have lived in several different countries over the last couple of years. With the aid of a scholarship, I studied in Stockholm, and completed my teaching practice in Dublin. Furthermore, I have also worked with children in the USA, Sweden and Switzerland. I dreamt about becoming a teacher since my childhood, so I am really passionate about education. As a teacher, I strive to create and maintain an environment where each child’s individual needs are kept in mind, so that all pupils can learn and grow. Every one of us needs some additional attention and care now and then and for children in particular, this is most important. Outside of school, in my free time, I enjoy running, biking, rock climbing and reading.

I was born in Hungary but lived abroad for several years. I decided to become a teacher because I love being around children, I love to learn, and have always been driven by the desire to help those around me.
I want to inspire kids to learn and grow. I believe that what happens in the classroom has the potential to impact students’ futures just as it did mine. I graduated as an Elementary School Teacher with English major and worked in a Hungarian-English bilingual school. For the last couple of years, I have lived and worked in Germany. This is my second year at BBIS and I believe that in every challenge lives a greater opportunity so I am excited to be a Year 1 Co- Teacher this year and looking forward to learning and exploring new things with the students.

I have always worked in international schools in Hungary and in the UK. I am passionate about making the learning experience enjoyable and memorable.
I strive to be a role model, a mentor and a facilitator of learning to my students. I believe the relationship I nurture with my students sets the stage for the learning journey. I’m passionate about literature and arts. I coordinate early reading instruction to nurture fluent, confident readers through our synthetic phonics programme.

Hédi
Bódi 2KH, Music

I taught at North London Conservatoire as a musicianship and music kindergarten teacher. I have a wide range of experience working with children aged 1 to 14.
I have always enjoyed being with children because I can learn more from them than from anyone else. Music is always a key element in my method which is a big help for many children to widen their perspectives. The most fulfilling part of my work is awakening young children’s desire for music throughout their lives. BBIS is a caring school where everyone feels welcome and supported teachers and students both. After relocating to Hungary from the UK starting to work at BBIS was the best thing that could have happened to me.

Sofia Hum2VE

I have been working at BBIS from the very beginning with the younger students and look forward to working at the school as it continues to grow.
Teaching is an incredibly rewarding job and it is the reason I was first drawn in as I believe this job has great value. In this profession we are privileged to witness students improving, growing and ultimately fulfilling their potential. The knowledge that teachers assist in this process motivates me to give my all in the hope that my students take away not only knowledge and learning but confidence, a sense of purpose and motivation.
I am excited to be part of a dedicated team at BBIS who will be responsible for setting the standard of education in Budapest. I feel supported to be the best teacher I can be through personal development and feel part of a team that always has the welfare of the children in the forefront.

Anna
Szigeti 3NJ

I’m from Keszthely, a pretty Hungarian town near lake Balaton. I studied in Budapest, at the Eötvös Loránd University’s Faculty of Primary and Nursery School Teachers’ Training. During that time my biggest experiences were to study in Belfast, Northern Ireland for one semester, and to work in a summer camp in the USA.
 
After my studies I become a primary school teacher in a Hungarian-English bilingual school. I worked there for 4 years teaching 6-11 years old children, and in the summertime I also worked in many kids’ camps.
I am a teacher simply because I love children. I am amazed of their curiosity, braveness and how open-minded they are. I think a great school is where all kids and teachers are excited and happy to come every day. For me BBIS is this kind of school. It helps both kids and teachers develop their skills, their English and their personality.

I  am originally from Bogotá, Colombia, where I pursued my BA in modern languages and I started my teaching career as a EFL and a bilingual teacher in two prestigious schools of the city. Following my passion for languages I moved to Sydney, Australia where I continued developing professionally studying and working with international students.
 In 2002 I moved to Budapest where I have been living ever since and where I have obtained great experience teaching a diverse student population across international schools.
Teaching is my passion. Since I remember, I have always enjoyed working with children. It is a privilege to contribute positively to their personal development and to watch them evolve. Being a teacher means facing new challenges everyday which become in opportunities of growth, change and personal progress and it is priceless. Teaching children is fun, it is exciting and I love it!

I studied Visual Communications and Illustration. For my master’s thesis I wrote and illustrated an original children’s storybook. Thinking with a creative mind taught me flexibility, adaptability, and the confidence to express a unique perspective, which are all traits I am passionate about nurturing in the next generation.
  Since 2013 I have taught English & Art at a bilingual primary school in Budapest before joining BBIS last year.
What appealed to be about BBIS was the emphasis of the arts in the curriculum, the access to a plethora of resources, the newness of the school and the cultural diversity among the community. I strongly believe that only through change can we be productive, achieve aspirations, and strive to be better. I value the opportunity to learn and grow in a forward-thinking environment.
I then completed a Master of Fine Arts in Illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. My thesis project was to write and illustrate an original children’s storybook.

Réka
Tóth5JC, Music

I was born in Szeged, south of Hungary. I moved to Budapest to graduate at the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy as solfege, music theory teacher and choir master. After having my diploma, I moved to London and lived there for 7 years.
I taught piano and musicianship at the North London Colourstrings Music School for children aged 6-16 years and also led 3 choirs. During my time in London I won a place at the BBC Symphony Chorus. In 2014 I started working at the Hungarian State Opera as an assistant of the orchestra.
I became a teacher because I love challenges and teaching children is a new adventure every day. I love seeing them when they have “AHA” moments and these tell me that they can achieve more than what they think they can, sometimes them without noticing it.
I think BBIS has a great atmosphere where the children can learn in a friendly environment and learning itself is important. The international surrounding is a bonus.

I was born and raised in a small city outside Sacramento, California. I moved to Oregon to study at Linfield College, where I completed my Bachelors of Arts in German and Intercultural Communication.
My first experience living abroad was during this time, when I spent a year at the Universität Heidelberg in an immersive German language educational experience—something that changed not only my personality, but which opened my eyes to the value of learning in an international setting.
I’ve worked in various educational settings in Germany, Washington DC, South Korea, and most recently, Hungary. I am thrilled to have been given the unique opportunity to be a co-teacher as well as the Year 5 German teacher. I believe we are all stronger and better when we learn and engage with other cultures and languages, and I love being able to bring this passion to my lessons, and teach in an engaging and dynamic way.
I believe that teachers are most effective when they are able to form meaningful connections with their students, and support not only academic, but social and interpersonal growth. I’m thrilled to be a part of this small international school community, and to work with such dedicated and talented colleagues, who are as committed to serving these students as I am, and I can’t wait to see everything our students achieve.

I have now taught ESL for three years here in Budapest. I have very much enjoyed the challenge of moving from teaching English as a first language to teaching it as a second language – it has broadened my understanding not only of how students learn but also of my own language. I aim to establish and maintain a classroom environment in which students feel safe and supported but also inspired to create and learn for enjoyment and self expression. My teaching style is energetic and versatile. My personal interests include travel, cooking, hiking and craft. I am also in the process of learning Hungarian although I admit my progress is slow!

I was born in Budapest, Hungary. From a very young age I went to international summer camps in the USA to learn English.
I really enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and learning about their culture. This had a great impact on me and I decided that I would continue my studies abroad. After finishing secondary school in Budapest I moved to England where I studied Hospitality Management at London Metropolitan University. Following my graduation I started working in the hospitality industry but soon realised it wasn’t my true calling. To put my knowledge of English into use, I returned to Hungary, and started teaching English as a foreign language to adults after completing the CELTA programme. I enjoyed this quick transition into a completely new area of work. Later I moved on to becoming a teaching assistant at an international school working with children in year 4 and 6. Working as a TA and as an English teacher has further evoked my enthusiasm for teaching. In 2017 I moved back to England to do a postgraduate course in Education at the University of Greenwich. I joined BBIS in September 2018 where I look forward to becoming part of the school community and work alongside teachers who motivate me in this challenging yet rewarding career.

A career in education began for me in France, in a French lycée and led to many varied and exciting posts in USA, UK and Switzerland, an educational aid project in rural Zimbabwe, a long developing venture with the Ministry of Education in Brunei as well as Kazakhstan, Egypt and now Hungary.
Subjects include English in various national and international curricula, Psychology, Sociology and University Counselling. My educational philosophy embraces the need for students to be ready for change, to work together, to communicate the language being learned and to esteem learning as a long-term venture with both opportunities for self-development, being creative, travelling widely and taking calculated risks. The IBO Learner Profile embraces many of these ideals which is why it is an excellent curriculum to live and learn by.

During my studies, I also completed one semester at Saint Petersburg State University, Russia. I started my career at Szent István University, Gödöllő,
 
as a teacher of Hungarian as a foreign language. In this period, I also edited and compiled educational materials for Hungarian and regularly appeared in an educational programme of Danubius Radio and Hungarian Television called “Telecke”.
Subsequently, I worked for twelve years at the British International School, Budapest as a teacher of Hungarian as a foreign language, and Hungarian language and literature for native-speaker pupils. I gathered considerable experience in teaching various age groups, from KS1 to adults.
During my career, I worked as a teacher of Hungarian as a foreign language for various foreign organisations (such as the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers, the Cultural Centre of the Russian Federation’s Embassy in Budapest, Erasmus, and the Rotary Club). I successfully taught hundreds of foreigners to master our mother tongue, which is far from easy, and made them familiar with Hungarian culture by virtue of activities which I organised.
I believe it is very important that Hungarian pupils in international schools take their first steps in the international context on the basis of a sound knowledge of their mother tongue and national culture. My efforts serve this objective whether with my pupils or my own children.

I was born and raised in Budapest. My relation to the German language started 18 years ago in primary school and it has guided me through my whole path. I finished my Master Degree as a specialist of German literature and linguistics on Eötvös Loránd University. Year by year the German language become to my passion.
On the university I got the opportunity to give lessons to children and since that I am building my career as a teacher. I worked with children and adults in different ages and I am glad that I could experience the challenges with my student, especially with students in younger ages. I always felt, that teaching is that field, where I can truly be myself. To transmit the knowledge for those, who are eager to learn and see the happiness and pride on the faces after each successful step can not compare to any another success on the field of work. Furthermore a calm and friendly environment is just as important for students as for the the teacher and in BBIS everything is given for a joyful, but effective teaching.

I was born in a small city called Marcali, beside the lake Balaton. I graduated from the Hungarian Physical Education University. Before the graduation, I spent a semester in Australia as a part of my diploma work. 
I have been teaching a physical education for more than a decade also as a certificated swimming coach has been a trainer for the younger generation. I used to be a swimming instructor and waterfront director in the USA during summer time.  I have been awarded twice for teacher Erasmus scholarship to have a work experience in England.
Health is not everything, but without health everything is nothing. Exercises are part of the health and part of the general knowledge. I believe Physical Education needs to be hand in hand with other subjects. Work for the kids day by day, to make them social, receptive, fair and creative. Let give them an opportunity to decide how they would like to use exercises later in their life, for fun or even professional. Whatever will be their decision if they do it lifelong, we have reached our goal.
