Ms. Frankie Ellwood


Frankie Ellwood completed the IB program at Zurich International School before studying a Biochemistry BSc at the University of Bristol. As part of her research project, she engaged local school students in authentic biochemical research techniques. This experience ignited her passion for teaching and inspired her to complete her teacher training at the University of West of England. Studying the IB gave Frankie a global mindset which drove her to have an interest in migration. Following this drive, she taught at an informal school for female refugees in Athens before moving to Samos to teach at a community center for refugees. As the pandemic unfolded, she took on the role of coordinating emergency response activities, responding to the urgent needs of the community. Continuing her teaching career, Frankie relocated to Hungary and taught the IB curriculum at the International School of Budapest. She is dedicated to science communication and aims to engage students not only in science but also in local grassroots humanitarian efforts. With her background in science, teaching experience, and passion for community service, Frankie is excited to inspire students and contribute to the school community.
