    I grew up in Walsall, a small town near Birmingham in the UK with my parents, grandparents and older brother who is now living in Indiana with his lovely wife. My family is of Greek Cypriot descent and being Greek means always having a house full of friends, family and children cooking and eating at every opportunity. I enjoy cooking and traveling and have been fortune enough to visit family in Melbourne, Australia and Cyprus, which was wonderful. I have also visited Rome, other parts of Italy, Croatia, Auchwitz in Poland and many Greek Islands where I have learned a vast amount of cultural knowledge that I use and pass onto the children in my class. I love exploring the city of Chicago, its neighborhoods, parks, and all it has to offer. I look forward to finding out more of Chicago and the states in the USA.

    Nursery Teacher

    Jennifer Partington

    Born in the North East of England I then studied in York, where I obtained my teaching degree. Following that I moved to London to teach in the Nursery class at a primary school in the Borough of Lewisham and developed a passion for teaching the youngest learners and the Early Years curriculum. I have since taught in British International schools in China and Thailand so I am quite acquainted with vibrant big cities. Although I have visited other places within the States, I have never been to Chicago. I am looking forward to continuing my love for teaching out there and discovering what the city has to offer, in particular the arts and culture around the city.

    Having completed my teaching degree at Chichester University, I found myself teaching KS1 in a primary school near Southampton. I quickly came to love working with younger children as every day turns out to be an adventure!   My husband and I arrived in Chicago in the summer of 2017 and have really enjoyed everything that the city has to offer, especially the food! Having survived our first winter, I can’t wait to enjoy all the amazing festivals in the sunshine.
