I loved primary school as a child myself and I always wanted to be a teacher. Teaching is such a rewarding job. Every day is different, full of fun and magical moments. Year 1 is an exciting class as children are blending sounds, learning to read and write full sentences. It is wonderful to see how confident children become when they read their first book or write independently.

I studied Psychology for three years and then completed my postgraduate qualification in primary teaching. I have seven years teaching experience. I was a class teacher for five years in the historic town of Kells in Ireland (You might know this town from the cartoon film ‘The Secret of Kells’). I taught year 3, 4 and 6. I worked as a Special Education teacher for two years at a school near Dublin. I taught children across all year groups from Reception to Year 6 who needed additional help with English reading, Maths, social skills or behvioural support. In Ireland, all children learn two languages at school, English and Irish, so I have lots of experience teaching children a second language. The immersion method at ENS is ideal as young children easily absorb new words when they are surrounded by native speakers.

Living abroad will be challenging but there is a wonderful friendly atmosphere at ENS! Moscow is a vibrant city, I look forward to exploring it and learning some Russian. In my free time I enjoy swimming, reading, yoga classes, going to the theatre, meeting friends and traveling.
