Rachel Boylan | British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Year 3 Teacher

I am from Manchester, a place I am very proud to be from. We are a city known for our football (soccer), music and strangely enough bees, and I have a real passion for all three. I am thrilled to move to Chicago and return to the states where my parents taught when I was younger. After teaching for several years in the UK, I moved to Hong Kong for 5 years. I was lucky enough to live there with my two brothers, one of which is a pilot, and the other a secondary teacher. For the last year, I have been working at a Nord Anglia school in Prague and I am excited to continue teaching at BISC Lincoln Park. 

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.
