I am originally from Ireland and I was educated in my beautiful home town at the University of Dublin, Trinity College. I gained a B.Sc. in Speech and Language Therapy, subsequently completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Early Years Education through Froebel College as and 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 friends here and take up a post in an English-language preschool. I planned on returning home to hospital-based work, but in 2004, I was offered a post at The British School and I have been here ever since, caring for and educating TBS children for the past fifteen years across the Early Years Foundation Stage, teaching all three year groups – from Pre Nursery to Reception.
