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.
I truly believe that there’s no limit to what every student can achieve if they are given the right opportunities to succeed. Having high expectations for the students in my class is something that I have always encouraged and is embodied by Nord Anglia Education’s ‘Be Ambitious’ motto. I know firsthand that the opportunities that the BISCLP students receive, whether it be in academics, the arts or the sports, are outstanding. I’m honored that I get to teach in this environment.
