Learning Resource Teacher

I am originally from Cwmbran, a small town in Wales, quite near to the capital Cardiff. I adore Chicago, some of the highlights are the lakefront path, deep-dish pizza and friendly people. Also, I really enjoy the surrounding area and escaping the city for Wisconsin on the weekend.

As we prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow, we can't even begin to imagine what these may be. I believe it is so important to instill a global awareness in our young people, so they can take on the challenges of the future.
