    Year 4 Leader and Teacher

    Danielle Stone

    I was extremely lucky to grow up in the beautiful county of Devon, surrounded by countryside and beaches. After qualifying as a teacher, I moved to teach in Newham, one of the most multicultural boroughs of London! I could not have asked for a more exciting and challenging start to my career - both with the exposure that London brings to new teaching initiatives, as well as my immersion into the culturally rich environment of school, in which over 60 languages were spoken. In 2011, I was thrilled to follow my dream of teaching and living in the US, and joined British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park. Outside of teaching, I love peaceful runs along the lake front as well as working out at the gym to keep fit. More recently, I have begun to learn the guitar, a slow but thoroughly rewarding task that reminds me of the many trials and rewards of learning a new skill!

    Year 4 Teacher

    Caroline Gordon

    I am originally from northwest London: I grew up, went to school and worked all in the same borough. After a few years of teaching Year 6 in a local school, I realized I wanted to take on a new challenge. I jumped at the chance to move to Chicago and teach at BISC Lincoln Park. As a big sports fan, the city suits me to a tee. I love watching the Blackhawks at the 'Madhouse on Madison' though naturally, being British, soccer will always be my number 1 passion.

    Year 4 Teacher

    George Sainsbury

    I grew up on the beautiful south coast of England with my two brothers, a sister and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in Communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I had always wanted to be a primary school teacher, so decided to venture up to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth. Throughout my ten year teaching career, I have taught in three large, multicultural junior schools. Special Educational Needs is a real passion of mine and for the last eight years, I have been a Senior Leader and led Inclusion in two schools. In 2012, I gained a post-graduate certificate in Coordinating Special Educational Needs from Exeter University. Another passion of mine are the Performing Arts; I believe children can gain so much in both their learning and confidence through the arts.

    Outside of school, I have many interests. I love to travel; I have been lucky enough to have seen a lot of the world, but there is still so much to see. When living in Chicago, I hope to discover and visit many places in America. I also very much enjoy keeping fit; this could be either running, swimming, cycling or going to the gym. I am eager to do my first marathon very soon (easier said than done!). While in Chicago, I am looking forward to visiting its theaters and museums. I have a keen interest in history and art.

    Year 4 Teacher

    I grew up in Berkshire and graduated from the University of Warwick with an honors degree in History of Art. I come from a family of teachers and always wanted to work in education so, after a number of years working in advertising and corporate roles, I completed my PGCE at the University of Hertfordshire. Since qualifying, I have taught at wonderful schools and have had opportunities to be involved in many different aspects of school life, which has been so rewarding. During my free time I enjoy running, yoga and snowboarding. I also like to read, visit galleries and socialize. I have been fortunate enough to travel from an early age and love to explore new places and experience different cultures. Chicago is an amazing city to live in. From its beautiful lakefront trails and vibrant neighborhoods, to its innovative architecture and changing seasons, there is so much to love about being here!
