    Year 4 Leader

    Rachel O'Neil

    I was born in a small town in Scotland, exactly in the middle of Glasgow and Edinburgh. I attended Aberdeen University where I gained my Bachelors Degree in Primary Education. While studying, I worked in Spain every summer which then inspired me to take my teaching career further afield. After completing my initial teaching year in Scotland, I went on to teach in Dubai where I stayed for a fantastic seven years. I have taught a range of classes from Early Years through to Year 6. Living in Dubai was an amazing hub for my travel addiction; I have now visited 63 countries, 6 continents, 6 Wonders of the World and every Disneyland Park around the globe! I love adventure and have enjoyed trying many new experiences such as: sky diving, scuba diving with sharks and paragliding in Rio (to name a few).

    I joined the school in August 2018 after moving from our Nord Anglia School in Guangzhou, China, where I had been living for 3 years. I have a passion for international teaching, and I am pleased to say that this is my fourth international post. I love living in Chicago and all of the things the city has to offer!

    Rick Smith

    I am an experienced educator with 20 years of teaching and school leadership experience. After receiving a B.A. (Hons) Primary Education from Manchester Metropolitan University, I spent eight years working in the state school sector in Cheshire, UK. In 2008, I moved to work here at the British International School of Chicago and I spent eight fantastic years at the school. I returned to the UK in 2016 to take up a role as an Assistant Head of School. Last year, I returned to Chicago and the BISC-LP campus. I love everything about the city and school and consider it home. I returned with my wife and young daughter - who attends the school.
