International School History - About - Richard Jones-Nerzic

International School History is the work of Richard Jones-Nerzic, a history teacher currently employed at La Côte International School in Switzerland.

I was born, educated and teacher-trained in Wales and first employed to teach history and politics at Olchfa School in Swansea from 1993 to 1999. From 1999-2007 I was Head of Humanities at the ill-fated International School of Toulouse and between 2007 and 2009 I was Academic Director at the British International School of Bratislava, where in addition to history I also taught film. From 2009 to 2016 I taught at the European School Brussels III where most of this website was developed.

I am interested in the application of ICT in the history classroom (especially digital film) but I am fascinated by philosophical questions in history teaching concerning epistemology and identity.

The eyes have it

I designed the ISH logo one snow filled afternoon in Bratislava. They are the eyes from historic faces of people I admired for some reason or other. I am running a competition for anyone who thinks they can identify any of the eyes. Send me an email and I'll create a hall of fame of successful guesses.
