It is a pleasure to come to work every day at the British International School of Chicago, South Loop. Our students are some of the most engaged, driven, and successful that I have taught. It is wonderful to see how much they get out of their language lessons, and how willing they are to take risks in their learning. Working in a vibrant international school like ours is exciting, and it is enriching to be able to work with pupils from all different backgrounds, and with colleagues who all have different experiences. I particularly enjoy getting to teach the I.B. Diploma Program which is rigorous, cross-curricular, and truly the gold star in education.
Outside of teaching, I am a keen swimmer – you’ll find me most mornings in the pool by 5 am! – but I also love lots of different types of exercise as I find it is a good way of maintaining good mental health. Despite taking a break from it for several years, I am an avid reader of all genres, and I enjoy traveling to new places as often as I can.
