Carla Williamson | British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Year 1 Leader

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 will be entering my 9th year at BISC-LP and look forward to getting to know a new group of children and their families.  I am excited to make new memories through fun, thought provoking and hands on experiences with the children in Y1.

In my spare time, I enjoy sports and keeping fit, and taking part in many sporting activities. I am also a keen sports fan and enjoy going to professional sporting events, some of which I have attended include the Olympics, Wimbledon, and the Commonwealth Games. I love that Chicago is such a vibrant city with so much to do. I enjoy exploring the city and trying out lots of different restaurants and watching the local sports teams. The lakefront is one of my favorite places in Chicago.  I am also a keen traveler; I love exploring new places and seeing all the different landscapes the USA has to offer.
