    Teaching was something I always wanted to do while growing up in Lincolnshire. Before moving to Chicago, I taught in both Key Stages 1 and 2 in a highly successful school in the outskirts of Liverpool following my graduation from University there.  While at University, I had the opportunity to do a placement at a school in Milwaukee, WI.  It was from there that I made my first visit to Chicago and fell in love with this wonderful city that I now call ‘home’.

    I am originally from Bournemouth, a beautiful town on the south coast of England, where I grew up with my two siblings. I attended Winchester University to gain a bachelor’s degree in Primary Education, with a specialism of Early Years. I qualified in 2010 and taught in a large, diverse primary school in the local area, which gave me many valuable experiences that have shaped me as a teacher.

    I grew up on the beautiful south coast of England with my two brothers, a sister and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in Communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I had always wanted to be a primary school teacher like my mother, so decided to venture up to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth.

    Year 1 Teacher

    Lucy Townsend

    I am originally from London and after gaining my first degree in English Literature and American studies in York, I moved back to London to complete my teaching degree. I then continued to teach in a school in East London for two years in both Nursery and Reception. I then swapped London for the hot desert of Dubai!

    I worked for Nord Anglia in Dubai and spent two years teaching Nursery. I have now spent the last four years in Chicago and have really felt like this city has become ‘home’. I am excited to be teaching Year 1 again this year and being a Jolly Jaguar! I strive to make learning engaging, challenging and exciting for the children, I am looking forward to continuing to be able to do so this year.

    Year 1 Teacher

    Hannah Wheatley

    I was born in Wales and lived by the seaside over there for a few years. I moved to the suburbs just outside of London when I was four and grew up close to Richmond Park so spent a lot of my time outdoors. I have loved my first year in Chicago, and I’m looking forward to discovering even more of the city and America this year. I started dancing at a really young age and then began acting classes. This passion became quite serious for me and I went to drama school from the age of 16 before doing my acting degree in London. I continued to act professionally for a few years and still take classes now. I took a job as a teaching assistant and fell in love with the career, so after a year I went to do my PGCE to train to become a teacher.

    Creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. I believe this wholeheartedly. Because of my background in performance, I ensure my lessons are taught drawing on different creative elements. This is because it engages children and ensures they are accessing their learning using different skills and mindsets at all times. Ensuring learning is cross-curricular brings it to life and means children are challenging themselves to discover more and try harder while they spot new ways to learn or develop.

    I was born and raised in Bettendorf, Iowa. From there I went to the University of Northern Iowa where I studied Exercise Science and Dance. Upon graduating I have worked as a full time dance teacher for 4 years. Through teaching dance, I developed a love for inspiring children to be the best they can be. This has brought me to BISC-LP as a learning assistant in a proper classroom. I am also working towards my Masters in Education at DePaul University.
