Just out of university at twenty years of age I moved to the Middle East to begin my career in teaching. This not only sparked a love for teaching but also a love for travel. I have taught and lived in 5 different countries including my home country Ireland. I can honestly say that teaching in England has taught me so much about myself and my practice. I have learned that there is much more to teaching than academic results. Success in the classroom is about forming positive relationships, instilling a sense of self belief, building resilience and feeling safe. Working with young people, particularly vulnerable young people, is my passion and I am very happy to be a part of the team at Tor School where I can see the positive impact it has on their lives.
