British International School of Chicago, South Loop | Private School Chicago

Year 3 Teacher

Teaching has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. Ever since my Year 1 teacher showed me how to spell "beautiful," I knew I wanted to be somebody who helped children achieve their dreams.

I grew up in a town in West London called Hounslow, and I was lucky enough to begin my teaching career in the town where I grew up. After earning a degree in psychology at Roehampton University, I decided to build up my experience in the working world. A few years later, I completed my Postgraduate Degree in Education at Brunel University and the pursuit to achieve my dream of helping children reach their full potential began.

Prior to joining BISC South Loop I taught for five years in Hounslow, and most recently was Year 1 Teacher and Year 1 Leader. One of my proudest achievements there was introducing a new style of teaching Math, which encourages children to apply knowledge and persevere with problem-solving.

I also am passionate about outdoor learning. I believe learning should be fun, engaging and allow children to explore the world at their own pace. Children are our future and there is definitely no limit to what they can achieve!

Outside of school, I am a keen reader, film enthusiast, lover of food, and enjoy traveling and having new experiences.
