I still remember my Career Guidance counsellor asking me what career I would like to see myself in and from a very young age I always wanted to be a teacher. From a very young age, I have always had te keen interest in helping others and enabling them to achieve their full potential.
This led me to study a Bachelor of Education Degree in Home Economics, Business Studies and Economics in St Angela’s College, Sligo, Ireland, where my passion for teaching further developed. Having qualified as a secondary teacher, I then went on to teach in a number of multi-denominational co-educational schools. These experiences inspired me to study a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Masters in Special Educational Needs. Since then I have gained valuable experience in teaching learners with Autism, ASD, ADHD, dyspraxia, downs syndrome as well as dyslexia. I have also been the main class teaching in educating learners with moderate general learning disabilities. All of this has developed in me a love for teaching students of determination. Aside from my love of teaching, I also enjoy running, cooking and baking. My vision for SSID is to promote the holistic development of all students through inclusive practice.
