I am originally from Aberdeenshire in Scotland and have been working for BISC Lincoln Park for 3 years now. I am looking forward to continuing to build many positive memories and experiences with the children and staff in Year 1 this next academic year. I really enjoy living in Chicago, from seeing the city landmarks and museums as well as enjoying many of the fantastic restaurants here. I also love traveling, and I am making the most of seeing America with the Californian west coast and Yosemite National Park being some of the highlights so far.
Children are willing to step outside of the predefined box and are willing to start thinking and looking at things in different ways than most people in our society look at things today. They have the courage to explore new things and, if they fail, they quickly pick themselves up and continue to persevere.
