    I grew up on the beautiful south coast of England with my two brothers, a sister and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in Communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I had always wanted to be a primary school teacher, so decided to venture up to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth. Throughout my ten year teaching career, I have taught in three large, multicultural junior schools. Special Educational Needs is a real passion of mine and for the last eight years, I have been a Senior Leader and led Inclusion in two schools. In 2012, I gained a post-graduate certificate in Coordinating Special Educational Needs from Exeter University. Another passion of mine are the Performing Arts; I believe children can gain so much in both their learning and confidence through the arts.

    Outside of school, I have many interests. I love to travel; I have been lucky enough to have seen a lot of the world, but there is still so much to see. When living in Chicago, I hope to discover and visit many places in America. I also very much enjoy keeping fit; this could be either running, swimming, cycling or going to the gym. I am eager to do my first marathon very soon (easier said than done!). While in Chicago, I am looking forward to visiting its theaters and museums. I have a keen interest in history and art.

    I was born and raised in Harrow, a borough to the North West of London, which is most famous for a prestigious boys’ school attended by Winston Churchill. I am proud of my London heritage and enjoyed growing up in a vibrant city full of life, culture and history. Away from the classroom my biggest passions include netball and travelling. I have been playing in a local netball league for five years and I enjoy working as part of a team to improve fitness and indulge in some friendly competition! I love to travel and am always keen to learn more about the culture and history of other countries. In recent years I have visited numerous countries including New Zealand, Australia, many European countries and, of course, The United States of America! I also use travel to test my personal boundaries; in April 2017 I walked the Inca Trail in Peru. After teaching in London for four years, I have decided it is time to spread my wings and move to Chicago. Having previously visited the city, I was inspired by its lively and friendly atmosphere.  I am thoroughly looking forward to the challenge of working in another fantastic city!
