I am from a town called Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. I studied for two years to become a qualified Nursery Nurse, before attending Edge Hill University near Liverpool where I undertook my teaching degree. After graduating, I moved back to my home town where I began teaching in a local primary school. I had the pleasure of teaching there for two years in a Reception class where I gained many invaluable experiences, such as, setting up a brand new classroom. During my second year of teaching I became Science Subject Leader for Early Years and KS1. This past year, I moved to a different Key Stage and set up another new (Year 2) classroom in a newly built teaching space. I first visited Chicago earlier this year on a holiday and I fell in love with the city, its diverse culture and unforgettable food. I am thoroughly excited to become part of the team at BISC Lincoln Park and to discover what more the city of Chicago has to offer!
