3rd & 4th Class Teacher

Do you like working in Scoil Chlíodhna CNS and why?

Yes, I really like working in Scoil chliodhna because all the children and teachers are really kind and respectful.

When you were a child, was your school the same as our school?

My school had the same amount of children which was similar. One main difference was that we did book work for most of the day and rarely did fun activities. In Scoil Chliodhna we do lots of hands on fun things.

If you weren’t a teacher, what would you be?

I would be an architect because I really enjoy working with my hands. I love building and designing  things and I also really enjoy art. That is why Art is now my favourite subject to teach.

What is your favourite hobby?

My favourite hobby is running. I don’t really do many competitive races but like to run alone to keep fit.

What was your favourite game as a child and why?

My favourite game was hurling because my friends all played with the local GAA club and I got to meet them there. Also I think because I was good at hurling it helped me to enjoy it more as well.
