Staff Profile: David O’ Dwyer

David O'Dwyer

Year 4 Class Teacher

With a keen interest in Literature and Language, David obtained a BA Honours in English and German at the University of Limerick, Ireland.  Furthering his studies, he then spent a year studying Linguistics at Karl Francis University, Austria. A summer spent teaching English as a foreign Language made David realise his passion for teaching and in 2005, he took the decision to move to the UK, to obtain his PGCE at the University of Warwick.

Having experienced teaching across the whole of the Primary Phase, David aims to develop a love of learning in his classroom.  Taking a lead on developing a creative curriculum in schools in the UK, David believes that happy and motivated children achieve best, and he strives to ensure each lesson is stimulating and engaging for every child.  David decided to move to Shanghai to broaden both his cultural and professional horizons.

Originally from the Irish countryside, David spends much of his spare time hiking and climbing.  He enjoys keeping fit, practising yoga and is an avid reader.  He also has a passion for travel and food.
