Libby Hopwood


Reception Teacher

I was born in Nottingham but spent most of my childhood in Norfolk, a beautiful county in the South East of England. I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of East Anglia, and then took up a teaching post in an independent boarding school in the Norfolk countryside, where I gained much valuable teaching experience. My next adventure was to Poland. It was a wonderful opportunity to work in an international school, The British School, Warsaw, and I am currently Head of Year 3. It has been a fantastic experience in Poland and I have certainly improved my knowledge of European history!

Outside of the classroom, I like to keep fit, play the piano and violin and try out different cuisines. In Chicago, I am hoping to join a netball team in my free time. I also love to travel, and have recently visited countries in Europe, Central and North America. I enjoy seeing the different cultures and environments. I am really looking forward to joining the team at the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park and I can’t wait to explore the city!

My favourite part of teaching is being able to enjoy the company of young minds and inspiring them to make the best of their individual strengths and talents. One of my hopes as an educator is to instil a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them.
