“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn” – Phil Collins

I am an Irish teacher with five years’ experience teaching Technology subjects in Ireland, as well as running the Technology department as HOD for 2.5 years. I also have three years’ experience teaching MYP and DP Design subjects here in the UAE. I attended the University of Limerick for four years where I obtained my Honours Degree; Bachelor of Technology (Education) in Materials and Architectural Technology.

I moved to the UAE three years ago, and I am loving the lifestyle and opportunities made available to me since making the move. I love playing sports, any sport, but most especially the Irish sports of football and hurling. I really enjoy visiting other countries, and learning about their cultures, and history. I love to relax by watching films, listening to music and reading.

As a teacher, I like to use various strategies to create positive learning environments to help each and every student reach their full potential. I enjoy teaching the principles and concepts of design to younger generations, and often encourage them to put these principles into practice through project work. Teaching design is my passion, and I am excited to put these strategies, and more into practice at SISD, developing our innovators of the future.
