I grew up in a small, beautiful town named Leixlip, a suburb of Ireland’s capital city Dublin. I lived here most of my life with my loving family; my parents, my brother and my sister. I spent most of my youth running around fields, climbing trees and of course playing school!
I’ve had a strong passion for education from an early age and after completing my Leaving Certificate in 2010 I then went on to graduate from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth with a B.A in English and Sociology in 2014.This was the perfect degree for me as it blended my love for English with my love of learning about different societies and cultures.
Then I was lucky enough to have the wonderful experience of working as a recruiter for 3 years in Dublin, this role was amazing as I could help people find their dream job! However, the itch to travel and to teach was overwhelming and I couldn’t ignore it any longer. I took the jump and left my 9-5 job and undertook the CELTA course. This was an amazing course as it opened my eyes to the world of education and reinforced my childhood dream of becoming a teacher and helping others to help themselves. In June 2017 I packed my bags and booked a one way flight to Austria in order to fulfil my passion; teaching those how to teach themselves and to change the world for the better.
I am very excited and lucky to be part of the wonderful and inspiring Anton Bruckner International School team, and the diverse and dynamic environment.
