I have been at the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park, for 3 years, teaching in Reception. Prior to this, I taught Year One in a rural school in Yorkshire, in the North of England where I am from.
Both here and in my previous school I have relished leading the subject of Literacy, as it is something I am passionate about. It teams well with my other love, the performing arts. I am a qualified dance teacher with the International Dance Teacher’s Association and taught singing, dance and drama for a stage school for 11 years, working with children from 2-18.
I have loved the global nature of the school where it has been wonderful to bring together the varied experiences of our families and learn from each other. The children have a real interest in and knowledge of the world as a result, which makes teaching and learning all the more exciting. I look forward to my move to Year 1 and being part of the next step of the learning journey I have seen so far in these children throughout Reception.
