Description: I worked in primary and secondary education in Ireland before moving to Scotland where I obtained my PGDE and worked as a P1 teacher. My first international post was as a Year One teacher in Doha, Qatar. This is my 3rd year teaching in Year Three and the 5th year at Renaissance. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, learning about different cultures and seeing life from a different perspective. One of my favourite past times is reflected in my classroom; reading, which I do daily.
