    I teach middle and high school French here at British International School of Chicago and feel lucky every day to teach students with a passion to learn and such enthusiasm for French. I also feel very fortunate to have taught some of my students for many years. I have been teaching the International Baccalaureate Diploma for eight years and love the diversity of the course and challenging my students to communicate at a high level in French. I have been an IB examiner for the last three years.

    British International School of Chicago is an amazing and unique school environment to work in. As a language teacher, I love that we have such a varied and diverse student and parent body, with a variety of languages and cultures represented. I appreciate how motivated the students at BISC are to learn other languages and about other cultures, and how enthusiastic and supportive the parents are about this, too.

    Primary French Specialist

    I grew up in a binational French-English family in Brittany (Northwestern France). I stayed in France for my Undergraduate studies, then worked in Tourism, Import and Export for a few years, including a role for a shipping company in South Africa. I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Education at the University of Cambridge, followed by a Masters of Education. My Masters thesis focused on third language acquisition for pupils with English as an Additional Language, which was inspired by my own experience as a bilingual learner. I started my teaching career in Secondary Schools, then switched to Primary with my latest teaching role before joining BISC South Loop being in a Prep School in Knightsbridge, London.

    French and German Specialist

    Rozenn Grainger

    I did a BA in French, German, and Italian in Wales, two years of which I spent living and studying abroad in Berlin, Lyon, and Perugia. I graduated in 2013 and was all set to do a Masters in Interpreting when I had a sudden change of heart in favor of teaching; I like to put it down to too many amazing summers of running summer camps, but whatever led me to that decision, it was the best one I ever made.

    I completed my PGCE at the University of Cambridge in 2015, and since then I have taught at both primary and secondary level in schools in Cambridgeshire and Devon. For the past two years I have been teaching French and German at a secondary school in East London, where I was also one of the Exams Officers. I love giving students opportunities to use languages outside of the classroom be it through competitions, trips or exchanges.

    I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an MA in German Studies and for the past four years I have been teaching in a large 11-18 year old school in the North West of England. Outside of teaching I am a keen swimmer, an avid reader and I love to cook, I was able to extend my reading of German novels when I lived in the former East German cities of Leipzig and Chemnitz. I’m very excited about working at the British International School of Chicago, South Loop, and working with pupils from all different backgrounds and colleagues from different experiences.
