Nursery Teacher

Having completed a PGCE in my hometown of Manchester in the UK in 2008, I decided to embark on an adventure teaching children in schools internationally. My first stop was Beijing in 2010, where I worked at the Nord Anglia school for 5 years. After that I moved to Hong Kong and worked for another international school before rejoining the Nord Anglia school in Hong Kong in August 2017. When the opportunity to come to Chicago presented itself, I was so excited for the chance to explore a new city (and country!) with my husband. I have heard many great things about Chicago. I'm looking forward to trying all the food and experiencing the culture that Chicago has to offer. I hear the city hosts some amazing music and arts events which we are very keen to see!

I try hard to personalize learning for every child in my class. The learning experiences I plan and prepare allow children to develop the skills they need to succeed. In my teaching, I create an environment where children are engaged, challenged and most of all, excited. I want the children to feel confident to take risks and have a go at everything, knowing they are fully supported and encouraged to reach their full potential.
