International Primary Curriculum

I am from a beautiful city in the south west of England, Salisbury. I attended the University of Plymouth, Rolle College in Devon where I undertook my teaching degree. After I graduated with my qualified teacher status I moved the East London to teach in the Borough of Newham. I loved getting to work with such a diverse community of people, learning about different cultures, languages and traditions. Moving to the USA has allowed me to continue this interest as I really enjoy travelling to different parts of the country. Chicago is a city I find rich in diversity and I really enjoy exploring the different neighborhoods and trying the different cultures of food around the city!


Creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. Teaching in the Early Years lends itself to being creative and challenging the children and myself everyday. I believe it is important to provide opportunities for children to be creative in their own way, that is relevant to them as they will often challenge themselves to further their learning.
