Samuel Cosgrove

Samuel Cosgrove - German and French Specialist

German & French Specialist | Head of Year 9

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.
