Nursery Teacher

I am from a town called Blackburn in Lancashire. I studied Child Care and became a qualified Nursery Nurse. I then studied further at Liverpool Hope University and became a qualified teacher with Early Years as my specialty. After completing my teaching degree I did a post graduate in Early Years Professional Status. I then taught in Liverpool for four years in a school where I gained many skills and experiences. I moved to Chicago to live with my husband and am still discovering the big city.

I believe in offering an interactive learning experience engaging students to help flourish and engage in their surroundings. I am passionate about making education enjoyable as well as providing challenge.
