I was born and raised in the bustling city of Glasgow in Scotland. Now commencing my 9th year here in Chicago, I am excited for the year ahead as our community continues to grow. In Glasgow, we have a saying that ‘People make Glasgow’; the same could be said for Chicago. I love visiting the different neighborhoods, exploring the city and suburbs, meeting new people and celebrating the diversity, foods and cultures that makes Chicago shine, just as its beautiful architecture does.
Having just completed my second masters, in International Education from King’s College London, I am excited to continue my role as International Early Years Curriculum leader. Early years education is a magical place, where young minds can be captured through imagination and where solid foundations can be built for successful and confident young learners. Our learning principles highlight that students should be encouraged to follow what they are passionate about. I firmly believe that this starts at a young age where through careful guidance, our students can learn to identify what makes them unique in preparation for the future.
