    Year 6 Leader and Teacher

    Tricia Bailey

    I was born and raised in London. I initially turned to a career in hospital pharmacy and progressed through various roles. Deciding on a new career path and keen to develop further, I attended Kingston University and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise, Nutrition and Health. While completing my degree, I worked with an active living charity, which aimed to increase the physical activity levels of families. Volunteering for such an organisation reignited a childhood dream to be a teacher and I was taken in a new direction. Upon leaving university, I began working with a charitable Saturday school for disadvantaged children, in their Science program. I then secured a place at the University of Greenwich and completed my teacher training. During three successful years at a vibrant, inner-London school, I have taught in Years 5 and 6 as well as have taken on the role of Science Curriculum Development Leader.

    I love that there is always something new to do or see in Chicago. My favorite experience so far has been kayaking down the river, and I'm looking forward to the various festivals and musical performances taking place throughout the year.

    I grew up in Leicestershire, England with my brother, Adam and mum and dad. I always enjoyed playing 'teachers' from an early age and graduated from Chester College in Cheshire in 2000 with a teaching degree. My first years were spent teaching in Birmingham, England until I moved to Chicago in 2009. Here, I am able to continue my love of travelling and playing sports by adding Central America and China to my list of places travelled since living here and even played netball for the U.S.A. squad in 2012 in Trinidad! I have since become a keen Crossfitter and continue to enjoy new challenges as and when I can find them! Chicagois a wonderful city and it continues to provide me with much happiness. From roller-blading along the lakefront path at sunset, to battling those chilly, wintery storms, Chicago is the place I call 'home'.

    I was born in Cheshire, a county in the North West of England, and grew up in Manchester with my parents, younger brother and our dog, Milo! After spending 5 years living in Liverpool at the beginning of my career, I moved to Chicago in August 2012. I love everything about this city - from the culture and architecture to the food and Summer festivals!
