    I am so excited to begin my seventh year at BISC-LP as part of team Year 5. Before joining BISC-LP, I studied French and History at the University of Nottingham before training as a teacher at Warwick University as part of the Teach First program. In my spare time, I love to paint, read, and travel as much as possible- since moving to the US, my favorite travels have been to Alaska, Argentina and Yellowstone. My favorite place in Chicago has to be the Art institute but I usually spend most of my time- and money- in the amazing restaurants. I am really looking forward to a great year of learning with my class. I believe that creativity and challenge help our students get better every day because they give a child the freedom to explore new skills and the chance to surprise themselves and others. Too often, children- and adults- have ceilings constructed above them through labels or expectations. However, by opening up the curriculum with creativity and challenge, we give each child the chance to do the unexpected.

    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!

    I grew up in Wakefield (West Yorkshire) with my mum, dad and younger brother before moving to Manchester to attend university. After receiving my BSc in Chemistry, I was a teaching assistant in a primary school, before completing my PGCE at Leeds University. Since 2011, I have volunteered for the Serious Fun Network (Barretstown) supporting children living with illness, which is a charity very close to my heart.

    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.
