Amy Donaldson-Davidson 2016

Director of Athletics

I am originally from Norwich in the East of England, although I have lived and worked in London for the past 6 years. My love of being active and getting involved in a range of interests keeps me busy. What I love about Chicago are the endless opportunities the city offers. With an abundance of sporting and cultural activities, it is an inspiring city. Chicago also facilitates my love of baseball and hockey, and I am delighted to support the community and local teams. Living by Lake Michigan is a dream, as I am at my happiest being by water. I am extremely excited to be able to live and work in such an incredible city.

Professional Development Experiences: I completed my QTS at Langley, an independent boarding school in Norfolk, and thoroughly enjoyed my 3 years teaching both PE and Drama in the primary and secondary departments. I then moved to London whereby I gained experience in some inner London City schools and then progressed to Belmont in 2012, an independent junior school in Mill Hill. I have coached students to county and national levels in hockey and rounders and taken groups of students on various sports tours. In 2013, I moved into higher education as an Education Officer in the marketing and communications department for a Russell Group university, Queen Mary University of London. My enthusiasm for learning and making a difference, combined with my love of sports, has led me back to return to teaching PE full time. Outside of work, I am an active sportswoman, particularly playing league hockey since I was 14. My passion for active challenges has led me to sailing in the Fastnet in 2012 and biking from London to Paris in 2015. Further professional development comes through captaining a touch rugby team and enjoying activities such as tennis and skiing. I am also a keen charity volunteer, marshalling part of the London Marathon and seeing Mo Farah was extremely rewarding and inspiring.
