Steph Davis


Year 2 Teacher

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.

In Chicago I look forward to cheering on the Cubs and the Bulls again! As a qualified dance teacher, I am also keen to find plenty of dance and Pilates classes to attend. I look forward to reconnecting with lots of familiar faces and getting to know plenty of new ones very soon.

Children have an astounding capacity for learning because they are curious and fearless. Planned opportunities for challenge and problem-solving in creative contexts allows for children to become resilient learners and enables them to develop a range of vital transferable skills that they can use throughout their learning journeys, long into adulthood. Persistence, determination, asking questions, reformulating ideas, communication, and patience are just some of these. A shared acceptance that we cannot and should not always be able to achieve immediately ensures that mistakes are viewed as a core aspect of learning and not deemed a failure but something that is always possible to overcome.
