Nicola Heard, Lead Teacher

Nicola Heard has been a teacher of elementary school children for over twenty five years and still thinks it is the best job in the world! She is English and has been living with her family in the States for eleven years, the last six here in Austin. She holds a Bachelor of Education Honors Degree from College of St. Hild and St. Bede, University of Durham, UK, and is a Certified Teacher in both Texas and Michigan. Prior to the International School of Texas she worked at a local international IB school, in Michigan, in Germany, and for many years in the UK. She enjoyed working in a variety of management positions over the years and teaching children across the whole elementary school age range. Nicola has a child-centric approach to teaching and is a great believer in positive behavior reinforcement. She has five years of experience of teaching in an International Baccalaureate school and enjoys using these PYP skills to further enhance learning within her classroom.

Outside of work she enjoys a range of mainly outdoor activities with her family (husband and two children aged 15 and 19) including travelling, skiing, diving and being out and about on their boat on Lake Travis.

This March, IST students and their families visited China for an international cultural immersion and service trip. Our student travelers took part in many exciting activities which included a service project at the Woolong Giant Panda Center, a student exchange at Shanghai American School , Calligraphy & Kungfu class at East China Normal University, along with many other exciting activities.

The trip was a stunning success and helped the students to further their language acquisition in Mandarin, as well as broaden their global awareness and cultural appreciation.
