Year 3 Leader

I am originally from Ireland, where I worked as a journalist for four years after graduating. Following a brief stint in Australia, I moved to Brighton in England to train as a teacher, where I remained for four years in before moving to Chicago in 2015. This city is incredible, and every week there is an opportunity to explore something new no matter where your tastes lie, be it sports, the arts or food. My favorite thing has been exploring all of the different neighborhoods.

Creativity and challenge help our students get better every day - We want our children to think outside the box when it comes to their learning. Children have some of the best creative minds, and I believe they should look at every lesson as an opportunity to take a piece of work in different directions based on the creative thinking skills we have equipped them with.
