Year 6 Teacher

I am from Sligo, a beautiful coastal county in Ireland. I wanted to be a primary teacher from a young age. I graduated from Dublin City University with a Bachelor of Education (Hons) in 2009. I taught for one year in a rural 4 teacher school and have been teaching in a large, urban, multi-cultural, fully inclusive school for the past nine years. During this time I have taught both Key Stage 1 and 2 in the role of mainstream teacher and as an additional learning needs teacher. I undertook a Masters in Education(Hons) in Maynooth University in 2013 and completed my thesis on strategies for teaching reading to young children. I have trained in the Incredible Years programme and believe strongly in the importance of building positive relationships in the classroom to enable children to achieve their maximum potential.

I was a member of the Professional Support Team in my previous school supporting and inducting new colleagues into the profession. I enjoy participating in school activities and trained the boys' and girls' basketball teams for the last five years.

I love to travel and explore new cultures during my holidays. I have visited a wide range of countries in North America, Central America, Asia and Europe. I am excited by the prospect of living and teaching in Doha. I look forward to meeting the staff, parents and children in Compass International School Doha.
