Nursery Teacher

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.        

I have really enjoyed working with the Nursery team this last year, as the children are constantly challenged through our creative curriculum. I am looking forward to continuing to develop the children’s independent learning and am really looking forward to a year with the Fantastic Frogs!
