Anne McVey


Reception Teacher

I am originally from Glasgow, Scotland. Always keen to be creative, I completed my undergraduate degree in Textile Design at Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art at Dundee University. However, I soon realized that I wanted to channel that creative energy into working with children. So, I completed my postgraduate degree in Primary Education.

In my eight years as a classroom teacher, I have had the pleasure of teaching all over Scotland. That includes six years at a school near beautiful Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. I saw the steam train from the Harry Potter films pass my school every morning in the summer term!

My love for travel and visits to U.S. cities inspired me to move Chicago. I am thrilled that I have the chance to live and teach in such a diverse and cultured city. Outside of school I really enjoy staying fit, whether running or going to the gym. I also love theatre, live music, and world cuisines. Another interest is learning new skills; my current personal challenge is learning the ukulele.

Being part of a creative, supportive, and nurturing learning community is highly important to me. It is this environment that excites me about teaching at the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park. I strive to deliver learning experiences that develop a child’s life-long social, emotional, and academic skills. I understand that creating a positive, responsive, and challenging learning environment that meets the learner’s needs is vital in allowing children to grow as individuals. I have seen first-hand that knowing learner’s interests well and using this to create active learning experiences makes education meaningful and inspiring for children. I believe celebrating every success in a child’s learning journey, no matter how small, is key to creating confident and valued learners.
