    It has become my goal in life to become an educator in the field of English. I have a passion for literature and would love to one day teach my own class. For now, I thought it would be appropriate to work my way through the ranks and learn the administrative side of things and British International School of Chicago was the best option. Holding a high standard for education, the school was very attractive to have on my resume and long list of experiences.

    School Nurse

    Mary Dyra

    I am excited to work at BISC South Loop because it is a tight-knit community of dedicated teachers, students, and parents. I am originally from the south suburb of Oak Lawn, but I have been living on the north side of the city since my time at Loyola University.  In my spare time, I love to get outside, go hiking, explore nature, and play with my dog Cooper.  I also enjoy getting lost in a good thriller novel or reading the memoirs of people who inspire me. 

    I received my bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Loyola University of Chicago in 2015.  During my time at Loyola, I realized that I enjoyed both community nursing and pediatric nursing which is perfectly encompassed in the role of a school nurse.  Since graduating, I have worked as a nurse in home health care with children and adults on mechanical ventilation.  Working as the school nurse at BISC South Loop was definitely be a big career change for me, but I am excited to continue working with children and being a part of the awesome community at BISC.
