Tessa C.

Learning Assistant

I am originally from North-West London and am British-Filipino. I have always loved travelling and after university made the decision to teach abroad, mostly in Asia. I have been teaching for over 7 years in South Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan, China and Thailand! 

I’m so excited to continue my teaching career and join the team at BISC. I love Early Years because we are building the foundations for students’ learning and every day is a joy. I now live in Chicago with my husband and our dog Mochila and am so excited to explore the city and meet Oprah.

I believe Unique and global opportunities enhance every student’s learning experiences because these opportunities teach them tolerance and resilience and help them grow as individuals.
