    Studying Performing Arts

Rozenn Grainger

Rozenn Grainger

French and German Specialist

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 am a bilingual French and English speaker. After living in England until I was 5, my family moved out to Paris as my father was working on the opening of Disneyland, Paris – it was a pretty magical time! When I was 12, we moved back to the UK and settled in rural Devon. I had some fantastic teachers at secondary school, but none were more inspiring than the languages teachers who came from all over Europe. They inspired and fostered a love of languages that stays with me still today, so studying languages at university was a no-brainer.  

I traveled throughout Europe during my degree and love discovering new places. I am looking forward to all that Chicago has to offer and am hoping to explore other parts of the US as well. In my free time I enjoy reading, different genres of music, and being creative, which can involve anything from cooking and baking, to painting and renovating furniture. I also love learning new languages and am determined to improve my Spanish!

This school is different to all others I have worked at becauset here are so many exciting things on offer to help students grow both inside and outside of the classroom, and I cannot wait to get involved. Beyond that, I’m also really looking forward to working in a school so rich in cultural and linguistic diversity, and to contributing my own mix of cultures to the melting pot.
