Saajidah Patel


I am from a town called Blackburn in Lancashire. I studied child care and became a qualified Nursery nurse. I then studied further at Liverpool Hope University and became a qualified teacher with Early Years as my specialist. After completing my teaching degree, I did a post graduate in Early Years Professional Status. I then taught in Liverpool for four years in a school where I gained many skills and experiences. I moved to Chicago to live with my husband and still discovering the Windy City.

I believe in offering an interactive learning experience engaging pupils to help flourish and engage in their surroundings. I am passionate about making education enjoyable as well as providing challenge.
