I am originally from Milton Keynes in the South of England but moved to Nottingham to study for my degree in History and French. I trained as a teacher at Warwick University as part of the Teach First initiative, working in Birmingham, England. While studying, I also spent a number of years living in the South of France. I have a passion for languages, art, theatre and travelling. Since moving to Chicago, I have been lucky enough to visit some amazing places- so far I have most enjoyed Alaska, Argentina, and Yellowstone. My favorite place in the whole of the city is the Art Institute but I spend most of my time and money in the many delicious restaurants.
I am so proud to be going into my fifth year at BISC-LP because I truly believe that creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. This school offers unique, bespoke opportunities that truly make wow moments every day for the children. The students and the staff are excited to work here because it is an exciting place to be- you never stop seeing wondrous things.
