    Assistant Head - Academics

    Alice Gaskell

    I am originally from North Yorkshire but have been lucky enough to spend the past few years working internationally and exploring the world. I gained my undergraduate degree in Music Technology from the University of Huddersfield and then spent a year as a Kindergarten Teacher in Taiwan before completing a PGCE and subsequent Masters at the University of Exeter. My international career has taken me to Ethiopia and Malaysia so far and I am very much looking forward to moving to Chicago this summer. I love the outdoors and can be found on a mountain or putting up a tent most weekends. I am very keen to explore Illinois’ State Parks and hiking trails as well as taking morning jogs down Chicago’s Lakefront Trail!

    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 welcomed our first child, Zara, in December 2018 and are excited to have begun our lives together as a family in this amazing city, one I very much now call home.

    My first classroom displayed the quote 'Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you will land among the stars'. It soon became the motto of all my classrooms, and one I continue to use. The idea now parallels that of our Nord Anglia Education idea of 'Be Ambitious'. Children who aim high, who see no ceiling, no roof, no barrier, to at least aiming high, are always able to achieve more than they thought. By instilling in our children, the notion of reaching, stretching, trying, hoping, they provide themselves with their own limitless target in both personal and academic targets. It is a well-known quote, but one that children live by in order to achieve all they set out to. Reaching for that moon allows children to be among those stars. But with drive, determination and a self-belief... they can sometimes make it all the way to the moon.

    Sarah Pearce

    I was born and raised in Australia, completing my Bachelor of Education at QUT, in Brisbane. From there, I moved to London to take up my first teaching position in a large school in the east of the city. My love of education along with my love of traveling has given me the opportunity to live and work in many countries, and since England I have lived in the UAE, Malaysia, China and now Chicago, USA. I am enjoying the diversity of Chicago, the access to fabulous food, the beautiful lake and just exploring the rest of the country with my family.
