Pre-Kindergarten / Foundation Teacher, 4-year-old class

I am originally from a small town in Northern Ireland; however, I moved to Scotland in 2000 to study my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I specialized in Developmental Psychology but quickly realized that my niche was working with younger children, so I was excited to be accepted into the Early Years Teaching post-graduate program at Stranmillis University College, Belfast. Once I completed my teaching qualifications, I accepted my first teaching post in a large Nursery School in my home town. I spent six very happy years there, working with and learning from some inspirational Early Years specialists.

In 2013, the opportunity to work at the British International School of Chicago arose, and I was very fortunate to be offered a position in the Early Years department. I had 3 amazing years in Chicago, leading the Nursery year group and developing the Early Years team. I loved being part of an International School, engaging with families from all over the world. 

I moved to Charlotte in August 2016, and I very much enjoy being part of our small, close-knit school community. The opportunities that are available for the children as a result of small class sizes and the international links that are made possible through Nord Anglia Education are truly unique to our school.

I love to be outdoors and living in the south definitely provides more year round opportunities for that! In my time in the US, I have managed to visit 27 states- I am hoping to make it to them all over the next few years.
