Kate Thomas | British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Year 2 Teacher

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, and 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 moved to Chicago with my family, my husband, my two daughters, and our chocolate Labrador Tegan. We have enjoyed so many opportunities this fantastic city has to offer, including the theatres, opera, museums, art galleries, amazing food and of course, the lake. I also love traveling and have taken the opportunity to visit places near and far. Since being in Chicago, we have visited Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, The Caribbean, and the Maldives. We have also taken the opportunity to explore the USA. What amazing National Parks there are here! I can't wait to see more.
