I grew up in a lovely area of England called Ascot until the age of 18 when I moved to study in the seaside city of Brighton. I loved living by the sea and thoroughly enjoy any water based activities, such as swimming and kayaking. I then lived in East London for five years where I completed my PGCE at Goldsmiths University. Before coming to BISC-LP I taught for four years at a wonderful London primary school.
There are so many things I love about living in Chicago - from the beautiful architecture, the endless summer street festivals and the diverse range of delicious food. My favorite way to spend a weekend is by cycling along the lake trail with the stunning Chicago skyline ahead of me. I have been lucky enough to visit several states this year, although I still have plenty more to tick off my wish list!
