Having graduated from the University of East Anglia with a degree in Mathematics, I also completed my post graduate certificate in education at the same establishment. I then started my teaching career in Liverpool. Three years later I moved on to a large British International School in The Netherlands where I taught for almost 4 years before my family and I relocated to Chicago.
As a mother of two young children, a lot of my spare time is spent enriching their lives. We spend a lot of time exploring the many and varied museums, zoos and other activities that Chicago has to offer young people. I am learning to play the piano, something that I had wanted to do for a long time but am now doing. I also enjoy swimming, although haven’t braved Lake Michigan just yet.
