Nursery Teacher

I am from London, and this is where I earned my teaching degree after studying in York and gaining a degree in English Literature and American studies. After obtaining my degree in London,  I then went on to teach in an early years setting in both nursery and reception. I have now spent the past two years with Nord Anglia Education, teaching in Dubai. Although I have never been to Chicago, I have spent a fair amount of time in the States, and I am very excited to discover what the city has to offer.

Learning should be personalized to each student as this is how children learn best. When children are focused on their own interests, learning is tailored to suit their needs and their abilities. This also allows for teachers to challenge children individually and for children to challenge themselves.
