Welcome to the Year 4/5/6 class page for the year 2018/2019! I am very pleased to be joining the HFS community and I am looking forward to updating this page with examples of the fun activities, projects and learning planned for this year.
To begin, I will introduce myself a little. I am from a small town on the west coast of Ireland. I completed my undergraduate degree in History and Politics at University College Dublin before completing my PGCE at the University of East London. I taught in London for a number of years before moving to Korea. Prior to this, I taught in Spain and India.
In my free time, I enjoy taking part in outdoor pursuits; these have varied from cycling and kayaking to the exploration of caves: speleology. I am also passionate about traditional crafts. My main focus is woodwork but I have also tried my hand at blacksmithing, basket making and origami. I have a keen interest in nature and environmental issues. I have volunteered on many eco-projects and I have enjoyed growing my own vegetables in the past.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in the HFS community. My door is always open so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
