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.
