Colette Ioannou

I grew up in a small village on the west coast of Scotland. I have a love for travel and enjoy experiencing new cultures and languages. I moved to Chicago in 2009 and have since got married and had our first child. The thing I most love about Chicago is it's diverse neighborhoods and their strong feeling of community, we very much enjoy exploring each of these, particularly during the summer months with their neighborhood festivals.

Unique and global opportunities enhance every student's learning experience. I very much believe in this statement since I am proof of this. During my high school years I did not enjoy learning languages (French and German). The learning environment was stale, and my teachers did not seem to tailor there lessons to young, innovative students. At the age of 17, I had the opportunity to spend a year volunteering in a school in Honduras, Central America. Speaking no Spanish, this was, in the beginning, a real challenge, but one that I would never trade. I feel that offering students exciting ways to learn is key to grasping their attention and in turn helping them develop their love for learning.
