Nursery Teacher

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.      

One aspect I particularly enjoy about teaching in the Early Years is that everyday you witness children discovering their strengths and talents proving that there is no limit to what every child can achieve. When we stop answering questions for them and focus more on raising questions through encouraging inquiry we open doors for the children to challenge, push and amaze themselves and those around them as to what they can accomplish. As Rabindranath Tagore said “don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time”.
