Ruby Dilmamode

Ruby Dilmamode

ICT Specialist

I was inspired to become a teacher when I took a year to travel around South East Asia after finishing university. I decided to move abroad and got an opportunity to work as a TEFL Teacher in South Korea. Cultural differences at first seemed difficult and challenging, in time I understood how to learn, accept and appreciate these differences. I immersed myself in the latest technologies living in a country like South Korea. I was surrounded by many cutting edge devices, tools software’s and gadgets which fed my addiction to technology.

I have taken my experiences and have tried to educate students not only in my own subject but also being able to teach those values, beliefs and to be respectful to others in our local community. 

In August 2014, I joined the British International School of Chicago. During my time here I have taught Key Stage 3 & 4 ICT, Computer Science and ITGS at IB level. I have been able to nurture and grow in areas that I am truly passionate about.

I currently lead in other responsibilities which include NJHS (National Junior Honors Society), the Multicultural Committee (M.C). NJHS has allowed me to continue introducing service opportunities for our students, this is something I have led in every school. I have also created the M.C. working with parents and staff on creating and promoting cultural awareness in our school and something I feel is important for our students.

To me, teaching has allowed me to make a difference, playing the different roles as a supporter, a leader, a motivator and at times an Instigator. For me, teaching allows me to not lose sight of, who I am but share a part of myself, encourage and help others to fulfill their full potential and give them hope when things seem to go against them.

 I believe that every student should have the chance and the support they need to help them progress and get the most out of their academic and personal life. My pedagogy is to continuously look to the future and learn from the past each new day is a new start.
