Matthew Bell grew up in a small Scottish town before a passion for Science and Mathematics had him heading to University of Glasgow to obtain a Master’s degree in Chemistry. During his degree he found himself happiest when helping others and after navigating through a postgraduate diploma in education at the University of Aberdeen he returned to his home council to help spread the passion he had grown and fostered over the years as a science teacher.
Matthew first arrived in Estonia in 2016 and has been with ISE ever since. This year marks 5 years of IB teaching for Matthew. In this time he has taught Biology and Mathematics across both the MYP and DP programs. Additionally, he holds the posts of Extended essay coordinator and staff representative of the student council.
Quick to adapt to new learning and teaching styles, Matthew is a firm believer in experiential learning and the value of new digital technologies. Constantly adapting and refining materials, he strives to teach in ever more engaging ways.
