Since graduating with a BA in Applied Language and Translation Studies from Dublin City University, it has been a main ambition of mine to work within education. I have spent five years living and working as an Early Years specialist in Beijing. I am extremely grateful for the experiences, opportunities and challenges that I have had over recent years collaborating with young children from ages 3-6.
My experience teaching with young learners has provided me with opportunities working with various curricula, the most recent being IB Primary Years Programme. I ensure to meet the holistic and academic needs of the learners in my care, through understanding the child’s strengths, interests and limitations – while also having fun!
I love to stay active by playing sports. I play for a women’s football team, in addition to playing Gaelic football. On the weekends, I enjoy getting out of the city and hiking on the Great Wall and afar. I have a lot of passion for languages and have studied both Chinese and French at university level.

I am very much looking forward to joining BSB Shunyi this year and working with the EYFS team to provide a challenging, exciting and caring environment for my new students.
