Year 5 Leader

I believe that creativity and challenge help our students get better every day because they give a child the freedom to explore new skills and the chance to surprise themselves and others. Too often, children and adults have ceilings constructed above them through labels or expectations. However, by opening up the curriculum with creativity and challenge, we give each child the chance to do the unexpected.


I am so excited to begin my sixth year at BISC-LP and my third year as part of team Year 5. Before joining BISC-LP, I studied French and History at the University of Nottingham. Then I trained as a teacher at Warwick University in the Teach First program.

In my spare time, I love to paint, read, and travel as much as possible. Since moving to the United States, my favorite travels have been to Alaska, Argentina, and Yellowstone. My favorite place in Chicago has to be the Art institute, but I usually spend most of my time (and money) in the amazing restaurants.

  • Universities Attended: University of Nottingham, University of Warwick
  • Degrees Earned: BA French and History, PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education), Graduate Diploma in Educational Leadership
