    I was born in Wales, but grew up mostly in Bedfordshire, England. I am a bit of a global nomad, and I have lived and worked in South Korea, Hanoi, Bahrain, and most recently Ho Chi Minh City. I also lived for a year in Sydney, Australia while studying during a sabbatical year from Korea. Although I do love travel I usually go back home to Wales at least once a year. My first solo trip was a school exchange to Chicago when I was 13. I wonder if anything will seem familiar to me after all these years. Maybe I will meet my original host family from back then.

    Judith Scholes

    Originally born in the North of England and moving frequently both within the UK and internationally, our family relocated to Chicago four years ago as a result of my husband’s job. We have all embraced living in the ‘Second City’, constantly awed by the skyline, the waterfront and the many opportunities for new experiences. I have especially enjoyed running along the lakeshore, live storytelling and rowing with my daughter’s crew team on the river. At home, a menagerie of musical instruments is a key component of family life, inspiring our eclectic musical tastes. After pursuing other careers I retrained as a teacher in 2006 and subsequently worked in both public and private schools.

    Learning Resources Learning Assistant

    Nathan Gornick

    I am originally from Elmhurst, Illinois where I resided until I moved to Appleton, Wisconsin to study music at Lawrence University. I earned my degree in January 2018 with majors in Clarinet Performance and Instrumental Music Education. I love making music with my clarinet and my voice, but what is most worthwhile is performing with others. Playing chamber music is one of my life's greatest joys; a joy which I hope to pursue further during my career. I’m very excited to draw on my experience in music education and join the Dragonflies team in helping children reach their highest potential as learners. In my spare time I enjoy making new vegan foods while listening to audiobooks, exploring green spaces, and capturing way too many pictures.

    I was born and raised in Chicago, but I enjoy traveling to new cities in the U.S. I love Chicago because of the population's diversity and the variety of food available here. We enjoy a great spectrum of weather too!

    I was born and raised in Wisconsin, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in history and anthropology from Marquette University and began working in education and teaching. I became certified to teach history and also worked in test preparation, including teaching ACT and SAT classes. Although I enjoyed education, I had long desired a career in the healthcare field and made a career change to nursing, obtaining my Master’s degree in Nursing from DePaul University.

    I was born and raised in Chicagoland and am excited to join the thriving learning community at BISC-LP.  After growing up with four siblings, I find I am continually drawn to environments with lots of activity and energy.  I realized that I deeply enjoy working with children during my three years as a Mental Health Counselor at Presence Saint Elizabeth hospital on the west side of Chicago.  My previous clinical work focused on treating children and adolescents admitted to the hospital for inpatient treatment.  My time there was filled with the challenges and joys of working on a team to support children’s health and wellness in every area of development.  Children grow and change so quickly and I find it invigorating to work with them on their journeys.
