Alex Wilkins

Math Specialist

The best thing by far about British International School of Chicago is the young people that occupy it. Our students are enthusiastic, hard working and very kind. Also, as part of a rapidly growing school, I get to see and sometimes administer big changes that lay the foundation for the school moving forward.

Before joining BISC I taught and coached at a Catholic high school in north London. I taught all levels of Secondary school and coached two basketball teams to the national final. Having gone to high school in Boston, I was always keen to live and work in the United States and BISC allowed me to do this whilst still working at an excellent academic institution.

I have always been a keen sportsman and represented England Under-16 and Under-18 in basketball more than 30 times. I also played in the UK’s professional league before moving to the United States. I am a big fan of English soccer (go Arsenal!) but also like American sports and split my loyalties between Boston (Red Sox, Patriots) and Chicago (Bulls, Blackhawks) teams!
