Meet the Teachers

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. – Mark Van Doren

The British School of Bucharest has a unique ethos and approach to academic excellence. Catering to more than 650 students aged 2-18 with a rich multi-cultural background, the BSB Faculty works every day to create an environment where the values of global citizenship are promoted and developed in our pupils. 

Apart from helping our students fulfil their academic potential, the BSB Faculty is responsible for instilling an appreciation for other cultures, world perspectives, and cultural backgrounds to help them become better individuals.

This section invites you to better understand the BSB Faculty culture by giving you access to our teacher's individuals stories and perspectives, what sets them apart and what makes them outstanding at their job. 

Their individual experiences enhance the British School of Bucharest culture of learning, high-quality work, and character aid students in becoming the best versions of themselves. 

So, let’s Meet the Teachers of the British School of Bucharest
