About the Athletics Director-Lee Jones
I completed my BSc in Sport, Health and Physical Education at the University of Wales, Bangor in 2004, and went on to complete my PGCE in Physical Education the following year. After completing my training I taught for 5 years at a school in Essex, before moving to Kenya for 2 years. I decided to move to Mongolia, as I had a real interest in working in a new school, but also wanted to work in a country that was developing as quickly as Mongolia is. I relished the idea of working and travelling in such a diverse country, with its rich history and culture. I have a genuine love of all sports, including team games and individual sports. Other activities I enjoy include outdoor pursuits, martial arts and reading
Key Stage 1 Coordinator – Maria Gettel
I look forward to being part of the staff and Senior Management Team at BSU this year. I believe that children are our future and that they have the right to the best education possible. I know that I can help to deliver this for the pupils at BSU and, at the same time learn about a new country which is at the very start of its life as a major global player. I am delighted to be involved in Mongolia at such an exciting time in its history. I have been teaching since 1993 and have held senior leadership posts for the past 15 years. My most recent post was Head teacher at a small rural primary school in Cumbria, England, where I was a teaching head, working 0.5 in Reception.
I am excited to be here in Mongolia, a country with a vibrant past and an even brighter future.
My two biggest passions are teaching and travelling. Mongolia has proven to be an interesting, challenging and fulfilling adventure so far. The staff and management are fantastic and I could not ask for better students.
Prior to moving here I was teaching in the Middle East for the last 4 years. I have a taught a variety of subjects in various key stages, including key stage 2, 3 and 4. I hold a B.Sc in Biology and a B.Ed from the University of New Brunswick, Canada.
