Claire O'Gallagher

Dover Court International School Singapore Claire O'Gallagher

Secondary School Mathematics Teacher, Form Tutor 7CO

Claire graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2012 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology and then completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Education in Mathematics at the University of the West of England in 2015.

Claire started her teaching career in a diverse school in Bristol teaching a wide range of students from ages 11 – 16. During this time she saw how education is crucial but needs to be accessible, enjoyable and relatable in order to engage the students. She also experienced the value of building positive relationships with pupils and how this helps learning. This is something that she has at the core of her teaching and always works hard to smile and make learning exciting and relevant.

Claire went on to teach in a strong academic school where she enjoyed seeing pupils with a passion for knowledge and the challenge this bought as a teacher. She also liked the school environment that offered much more than just classroom learning and was excited to be involved in extracurricular activities with students. Claire did this by leading girls hockey and netball teams. Claire really values this as it allows her to build rapport and to see students in a different light outside the classroom.

Out of school, Claire enjoys playing team sports (particularly hockey), running, cooking, travelling and trying new foods.
