Casey Lavin


Year 1 Teacher

I grew up in a coastal town called Barry in South Wales. I relocated to England to study at the University of Worcester where I earned a bachelor's degree (honors) in Primary Initial Teacher Education with QTS. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to teach internationally. It is fantastic to inspire new students, build a relationship with their parents/guardians, and experience life in a new country. Before joining BISC-LP this year, I taught in Qatar and Shanghai.

Even though I have never visited Chicago, I have heard about everything it has to offer - the music, comedy, and people. Whilst in Chicago, I am keen to travel around as many states as I can to fully experience American life. I have a love for action sports and enjoy wakeboarding, scuba diving, and skiing. I am an avid animal lover and love to foster rescue dogs to give them a new start to life. I also love to travel. Over the past couple of years, I have travelled throughout Asia, Africa, Central America, and New York.

I believe that there's no limit to what every student can achieve. When students are inspired through an engaging and exciting curriculum, they can achieve whatever they put their minds to. As a teacher, I promote a high level of respect between my students. I strive for all students to be ambitious for their future. Through a love of learning and enthusiastic teaching, my students and I create an inclusive environment, where they can reach for the stars academically and non-academically.
