    Tom Collins

    STEAM Leader and Science Specialist

    Tom Collins

    I'm originally from Gloucestershire in the UK. Since moving to Chicago I've found ways to get stuck into my local community: volunteering at the Nature Museum, tending a plot in my local park's community gardens, and starting a book club in my neighborhood to get to know my neighbors. I love how every neighborhood is so unique and experiencing great places to eat, socialize, and experience something new.

    Louisa Collins

    Science Specialist & Halsted House Captain

    Louisa Collins

    I grew up in beautiful West Yorkshire (Wakefield) before moving to Manchester to attend university. After receiving my BSc in Chemistry, I was a teaching assistant in a primary school, which then inspired me to complete a PGCE at Leeds University.  

    Since 2011, I have volunteered for the Serious Fun Network (Barretstown), supporting children living with illness. This is a charity very close to my heart, and I am excited to still be a part of this wonderful organization in the USA. I am a huge fan of musical theatre, and am excited to have the chance to finally make it to Broadway this year.

    Art Specialist

    Justine Domine

    I was born in London, England. I have dual citizenship with a French father and a British mother. I speak four languages fluently, the last being English, which I learned at the age of seven. I have a BA Honors degree in Fashion and Marketing from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts in London. I specialized in accessory design and spent several years working in fashion houses, including Jimmy Choo, Burberry, and Jérôme Dreyfuss. I worked mainly with leather and metal work. I have always enjoyed working with children, and decided to pursue a post graduate in education at the University of Gloucestershire. Alongside my studies and training in education, I maintained my own jewelry line and continued to freelance in design. Since moving to Chicago in 2011, I have met my husband and have had two children. Chicago and BISC-LP have quickly become my home.
