    I grew up in London and, after finishing my degree, I took a range of jobs in the city before deciding to enter the teaching profession. My wife is from Michigan, we met when we were both working as summer camp counselors in Maine, and we married in 2009, staying in London for 3 years before making the move across the Atlantic to Chicago. I am a West Ham fan and run the supporters' club here in the city. There are plenty of reasons to like Chicago, but the one thing I love is that it is made up so many different people and cultures from across the globe, creating a culturally rich environment that you can see and hear and feel.

    I am from the very beautiful county of Yorkshire. Having spent my first few years teaching in the same area, I decided to move to Chicago and the wonderful community of BISC-LP. I spent four years at the school and truly experienced the city in all of its glory, from the grueling polar vortex in my first year to the momentous World Series win in my final year. Then, I moved back to the UK to teach in Battersea in South West London. I took a lead in the development of teaching a range of subjects, including English and Math. I also acted as a Learning Development Coordinator to support children with special education needs. Teaching in London was wonderful, but I am very excited to return to Chicago, a place I consider to be my home.

    I call the UK my home. However, after graduating from university and completing my first few years of teaching, my husband and I decided we wanted to see the world beyond the UK. It turned into the first step of a big adventure. We have since had the amazing opportunity to live and work in many different countries, including Nigeria, Oman, Spain, Turkey, and the United States. I have been fortunate enough to build a broad set of experiences by teaching in international schools in all of these places, almost exclusively teaching the British National Curriculum with additional brief experiences in the U.S. and Montessori systems. I have taught all age ranges from Nursery to 11-year-olds. It has been fascinating to see the differences in cultures, but what remains the same is that teaching children is my passion.

    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.

    I am very proud to be from Manchester, a city known for football (soccer), music, and (strangely enough) bees! I have a real passion for all three. I have taught in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Prague. I am now in my second year at BISC-LP. I love exploring the city of Chicago, especially by bike, and eating lots of delicious cuisines along the way.

    I believe that both creativity and challenges help students get better every day. In the past, schooling was focused on making each child reach the same end result with a finite level. I am excited to be part of a teaching community that is striving to make each child unique by presenting them with opportunities to be creative and explore this creativity through all subjects in the curriculum. I aim to challenge all the students in my class to go beyond the expected level in order for them to reach their full potential.
