John Lynn was born in the (then) small town of Castlebar, County Mayo and moved with his family to Saudi Arabia for a couple of years before returning to Ireland to settle in Blackrock, County Dublin, just in time to start preschool.
Mr. Lynn graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 2009 with a first class Honours Degree in Business Studies. He then moved to London to complete his PGCE at UEL, after being inspired by his mother who was also a teacher.
He then taught at the new Cranbrook Primary School in Ilford and took on management roles as Data and Assessment Coordinator and Year Group Leader. Mr. Lynn has returned to Dublin to teach Grade 1 (6-7 year olds) at Nord Anglia International School, Dublin after four years in Kellet School - The British International School, Hong Kong. At Kellet, Mr. Lynn learnt an incredible amount about international education and took an interest in supporting children with special educational needs. He has completed a postgraduate qualification from the Leeds Beckett University as a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo) and plans to continue studying for a Master's qualification.
Aside from teaching, Mr. Lynn is a keen rugby player who has played for twenty years.
