Erin Woodhams | British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Director of Marketing, Admissions, & Communications

I am thrilled to be a part of the team at the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park and enjoy being part of a vibrant international community of learners and educators.

After receiving a B.A. in psychology from New York University and a M.S. Ed. from Manhattan College, I spent eleven years working in the New York City independent schools on the upper east and upper west side in admissions and communications. During my time in New York I served on the board of trustees for the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) as the communication chair. My family and I relocated to Chicago, my hometown, in April 2014. I joined the BISC-LP community in April 2015 after a year of  consulting for School Choice International. 

I have two children attending BISC-LP, Oliver and Luke, who both started in our Early Years program. They literally run into school every day excited for what new experiences each day will hold. We spend a lot of time outdoors, when possible, going on adventures in our neighborhood, around Chicago or just walking our chocolate Lab. We enjoy traveling and visiting our family in the UK. We love entertaining so large dinner parties with lots of friends and family visiting our home is a weekend staple, good food and good conversation! 

The passion and care the teachers at our school pour into supporting each child as an individual, ensuring they reach their potential, is an amazing part of the BISC-LP experience and makes me proud to be both part of their team professionally and as a parent in the school.
