    Assistant Head - Community/Well-Being

    Kirsty Gallo

    I grew up in Leicestershire, England with my brother, Adam and mum and dad. I always enjoyed playing 'teachers' from an early age and graduated from Chester College in Cheshire in 2000 with a teaching degree. My first years were spent teaching in Birmingham, England until I moved to Chicago in 2009. Here, I have been able to continue my love of traveling and playing sports by adding Central America and China to my list of places traveled since living here and even played netball for the U.S.A. squad in 2012 in Trinidad! I have since become a keen Crossfitter and continue to enjoy new challenges as and when I can find them! Chicago is a wonderful city, and it continues to provide me with much happiness. I met my Chicago-born husband, Nico, here in 2013 and we married in 2017 in Lakeview. We are excited to have begun our lives together in this amazing city, one I very much now call home.

    Assistant Head - Academics

    Jane Wollaston

    I was born in London but moved to Kent at 8, where I lived until I trained to teach at The University of Hertfordshire.  I gained my BEd in 2001 and spent the first 2 years of my career teaching a Year 3 and 4 class in an urban school.  I thoroughly enjoyed my first two years of teaching but was struck down by wanderlust!  I moved to Ireland and spent six months living and working there before packing my backpack and seeing the world for six months.  In the following years, I taught children from Nursery through to Year 6 and also took further time out to travel through Asia and South America.  I moved back to London in 2008, teaching at a large primary school in South East London for ten years; here I taught Years 5 and 6, was a Year Group Leader, a Senior Leader and Math Lead, working with my school and others in the local area.  I love city life so moving to Chicago is such an exciting opportunity!  I cannot wait to explore the lakefront, to become immersed in the arts and music, and to experience a really cold winter!
