    I am so excited to begin my seventh year at BISC-LP as part of team Year 5. Before joining BISC-LP, I studied French and History at the University of Nottingham before training as a teacher at Warwick University as part of the Teach First program. In my spare time, I love to paint, read, and travel as much as possible- since moving to the US, my favorite travels have been to Alaska, Argentina and Yellowstone. My favorite place in Chicago has to be the Art institute but I usually spend most of my time- and money- in the amazing restaurants. I am really looking forward to a great year of learning with my class. I believe that creativity and challenge help our students get better every day because they give a child the freedom to explore new skills and the chance to surprise themselves and others. Too often, children- and adults- have ceilings constructed above them through labels or expectations. However, by opening up the curriculum with creativity and challenge, we give each child the chance to do the unexpected.

    I am from a beautiful city in the south west of England, Salisbury. I attended the University of Plymouth, Rolle College in Devon where I undertook my teaching degree. During my four-year degree I got the opportunity to do one of my teaching placements in Fredonia, New York. This certainly sparked my love of the USA. After I graduated with my qualified teacher status, I moved to East London to teach in the Borough of Newham. I loved getting to work with such a diverse community of people, learning about different cultures, languages and traditions. I have lived in Chicago for eight years now and I am so happy to call this wonderful city home. I love exploring the different neighborhoods and trying the different cultures of food around the city! I have also been incredibly lucky to travel around many parts of the USA and I love visiting everything from the mountains in Colorado to the beaches in California!

    Creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. Creativity is always at the forefront of learning in the early years. Everyday leads towards children creating their own experiences that help to develop a love for learning as well as building an important foundation of skills. It is through this love for learning that children can then be challenged to develop and grow their understanding.

    I grew up in north London and studied at the University Nottingham for my degree and the University of Brighton for my PGCE before moving back to London to begin my teaching career in a local state school. I first moved to Chicago in 2011 and taught at the British International School of Chicago for 5 rewarding years in different year groups and middle leader positions before leaving in 2016. After a few years teaching back in England and focusing on my family, I am excited to return to Chicago for a second time and to work at BISCLP. This time around I am looking forward to introducing my young daughter to this wonderful city and seeing it through her eyes!
