Nationality: Irish
Position at Renaissance: Teacher of Computer Science
Education and Qualifications:
• BSc (Hons) Computing & Information Technology – The Queen’s University of Belfast, U.K;
• Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Secondary ICT – The Queen’s University of Belfast, U.K

Teaching Experience: Over 2 years of experience working in Northern Ireland and Bahrain.
Professional Accomplishments: I have organised the extra-curricular clubs and activities at a previous school. It was required that each teacher provided two terms worth of clubs. It was my role to collate the clubs and suggest clubs for teachers to lead. Alongside my coordinator role, I also ran a successful Gaelic Football club and an ICT club. I connected two classrooms from across the world; one in Bahrain and another in Northern Ireland to create a learning experience for the pupils. The pupils took part in an hour of code together and were able to collaborate and learn about coding and other cultures.
Description: I look forward to my new role at Renaissance International School Saigon. I am always looking for new technologies to bring into the classroom. In my spare time, I like to travel, play sports and socialise. I like to explore new places and meeting new people. I am looking forward to starting the next chapter of my life in Vietnam.
