I was born in Wales and lived by the seaside for a few years. Although I wasn’t there long, I very much consider myself Welsh and go back to visit my family as much as I can. I moved to the suburbs just outside of London when I was four and grew up close to Richmond Park, so I spent a lot of time outdoors. I started dancing at a really young age and then began acting classes. This passion became quite serious for me. I went to drama school from the age of 16 before completing my acting degree in London. I continued to act professionally for a few years and still take classes now.
I am so excited to join the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park and to experience all of the adventures ahead! I am eager to discover the culture and lifestyle of Chicago as well as school life in an international setting. I also can't wait to discover lots of live music.
Creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. I believe this wholeheartedly. Because of my background in performance, I ensure my lessons are taught drawing on different creative elements. This is because it engages children and ensures they are accessing their learning using different skills and mindsets at all times. Ensuring learning is cross-curricular brings it to life and means children are challenging themselves to discover more and try harder while they spot new ways to learn or develop.
