    I was extremely lucky to grow up in the beautiful county of Devon, surrounded by countryside and beaches. After qualifying as a teacher, I moved to teach in Newham, one of the most multicultural boroughs of London! I could not have asked for a more exciting and challenging start to my career - both with the exposure that London brings to new teaching initiatives, as well as my immersion into the culturally rich environment of school, in which over 60 languages were spoken. In 2011, I was thrilled to follow my dream of teaching and living in the US, and joined British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park. Outside of teaching, I love peaceful runs along the lake front as well as working out at the gym to keep fit. More recently, I have begun to learn the guitar, a slow but thoroughly rewarding task that reminds me of the many trials and rewards of learning a new skill!

    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 call Britain my home, however after graduating from university and completing my first few years of teaching, my husband and I decided we wanted to see a little of the world beyond the UK. It turned into the first step on a big adventure and we have since had the tremendous opportunity of living and working in many different countries including Nigeria, Oman, Spain, Turkey, the USA. 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 of the US system and Montessori approach. I have taught all age ranges from nursery children to 11 year olds. It has been fascinating to see the difference in cultures but what remains the same is that teaching children is my passion.

    I was born in Sierra Leone West Africa. I moved to Chicago when I was in 3rd grade. My favorite part of Chicago is Woodfiled mall (Second largest mall in America). I enjoy maintaining a active lifestyle. I like working out daily and hiking once a month. I speak five languages including English. I am very passionate about fitness and learning.

    Unique and global opportunities enhance every student's learning experience and open their minds to new and diverse ideas. It also allow the kids to learn about each other/ teachers ethic background and culture. Learning about each other experience and background give children the opportunity to make connection with their friends and families history.

    I was born and raised in Chicago, but I enjoy traveling to new cities in the U.S. I love Chicago because of the population's diversity and the variety of food available here. We enjoy a great spectrum of weather too!

    I believe learning should be personalized to each student in order to achieve success. Each child's needs are different and we must be cognizant of how best to tailor our methods and strategies, in order to benefit the child. There will always be a child or children that require that additional step or push and we must be prepared.
