Grade 1 Teachers


We are very excited to be apart of the grade 1 team and teach your children this year! We would like to welcome all the new families to our school. Below you will find a brief introduction of the grade 1 teachers and the contact details of the CCEP educators. We are looking forward to a successful year!

1a Room 1.10

Hello! My name is Debby Carney and I am the 1a classroom teacher. I am originally from the United States. I have been teaching internationally now for nine years, although most of my teaching has been in Germany. I am looking forward to another great year here at BMS!


1b Room 1.09

Hi! I am Lauren de Cort and I am the homeroom teacher for 1b. I have just started my 5th year at BMS and my 10th year of teaching. I have spent the majority of my teaching years with first graders. I love seeing the growth the children make and it is also a very entertaining and fun age group to be surrounded by. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia.

1c Room 1.07

My Name is Damian Granich and I am the homeroom teacher for 1c. I started here at BMS as a long term reliever of first grade for the school year 2013-14, and thoroughly enjoyed teaching my own first grade class last year. I believe I have found my favourite teaching position within first grade, as it is always challenging and extremely rewarding. Prior to this I taught 9 to 13 year olds at a Montisori School in New Zealand for three years. Our class has already had an excellent start and I am looking forward to the successful year ahead!


1d Room 1.04

Hello, my name is Rachel Hall and I am pleased to be the 1d homeroom teacher this year! I am from the United States, born in Whitefish, Montana, although I have also lived in other parts of the States as well. I have over fifteen years of teaching experience gained in Arizona, New Zealand, Japan, Finland, and Germany. This is my second year teaching Grade One here at BMS and it is the first year I am also the Primary School's English Coordinator. We've had a great first few days here in 1d! The students are excited to make new friends and many have told me that they are eager to begin learning.
