Reception Teacher

I am originally from the city of 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 and after graduating I completed my postgraduate degree in Primary Education. In my nine years’ experience as a classroom teacher, I have had the pleasure of teaching in locations all over Scotland, including six years at a school near beautiful Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. This included seeing 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 last year, and I have enjoyed every minute of living in such a vibrant and diverse city.

In my experience, early years classrooms allow children to grow, explore, discover and have fun! Creating this positive learning environment is key to my ethos in allowing children to feel confident in their own abilities and to achieve their full potential. Outside of school I really enjoy running, cycling, going to the theatre and continuing to explore the wonderful city of Chicago!
