I am originally from Ireland and I was educated in my beautiful home town at Trinity College, Dublin where I gained a B.Sc. in Speech and Language Therapy, subsequently completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Early Years Care and Education through Froebel College as well as a TEFL Certificate for early learners in Dublin School of English, as I had bitten the travel bug but wanted to be able to work with young children wherever I landed.
When I initially qualified, I worked in both hospital and community-based settings in Dublin as a paediatric speech and language therapist with children who had been born prematurely or with developmental delays or disorders. Having made Polish connections during my time in University, I decided to visit my friends (one of whom later became my husband), to study Polish and take up a post in early years in Piaseczno, Poland in an English-language preschool. I planned on returning home to hospital-based work, but in 2004, I was offered a post in Nursery here at The British School and I have been here ever since, caring for and educating TBS children for twelve consecutive years in Early Years as a Pre Nursery or Nursery teacher and from 2016, as a Reception teacher.
