When in the classroom, my main aims are to excite, inspire, and nurture all children. I pride myself in creating a safe, secure, and loving environment. I believe each child is an individual with individual needs and that their learning should be personalized and structured to meet those academic needs. Every child deserves to learn in a holistic, nurturing environment where both their educational and emotional needs are fully met. This will essentially help every child reach their full potential and feel content and supported while doing so.
I was born and raised in West Yorkshire, England, where I studied for two years to become a qualified Nursery Nurse. I then attended Edge Hill University near Liverpool, where I undertook my teaching degree. After graduating, I moved back to my hometown where I began teaching in a local primary school. I had the pleasure of teaching there for three years in Early Years and Key Stage 1 where I gained many invaluable experiences. During my second year of teaching, I became Science Subject Coordinator for Early Years and Key Stage 1.
When I was offered a position at BISC-LP in 2016, it was a dream come true. My position here as Pre-Nursery Leader and Program Director has allowed me to combine my knowledge of teaching and caring for young children, my passion for creating nurturing environments, and my love for putting children and their families at the center of everything I do.
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to visit may places around the world. I first visited Chicago after meeting my Chicago-born fiancé, Corey, while traveling in Italy in 2015. I immediately fell in love with the city, its diverse culture, and unforgettable food. Corey and I became engaged in July of last year while traveling in Paris and are currently planning our English countryside wedding for July of next year.
