    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 am originally from the island town of Enniskillen in northern Ireland. After completing my undergraduate studies in Belfast, I moved to Newcastle in northeast England to obtain my teaching qualification. I have taught in England, Ireland and, for the past seven and a half years, Helsinki, Finland. I'm very excited to settle into Chicago and get to know the city. Of course, I am also very much looking forward to meeting the kids and staff of BISC-LP.

    I was born and raised in Waltham, Massachusetts. Once I graduated from college, I moved out to Orlando, FL for an internship with Walt Disney World. My program was originally 3 months, but I had the honor to renew my contact twice. Completing a year long internship, shortly after I moved to Chicago to work for City Year. As well as for a volunteering opportunity to help under resourced children in the south side of Chicago, specially in Back of The Yards. After my brief time at City Year, I started to work for an Early Childhood Center in the heart of downtown Chicago as a Primary Toddler Teacher. When I was younger I dreamed of being a teacher, but followed a path in social work. Teaching wasn’t, a part of my plan. Yet, I love being in the classroom and it has grown to be a career path I enjoy. I love Chicago because it reminds me so much of Boston and I feel at home here, even if I am a thousand miles away! Plus there’s always something to do!!

    I believe that there should be no limit to what every student can achieve because everyone is different. We set our own stands & pave our own goals as well as dreams. A child should always dream as big as they want without having someone say it is too small or big to achieve. As long as they set their mind to it and so what can achieve it as long as they do what they believe they need to a achieve it they can do it. As one of my favorite quotes says, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our dearest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
