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!
When teaching, my main aim is to excite, inspire and nurture all children. I believe each child is an individual with individual needs and that their learning should be personalized and structured to meet those academic needs. Every child deserves to learn in a holistic, nurturing environment; where both their educational and emotional needs are met. This will essentially help every child reach their full potential!
