- Junior Cert
- Poetry Study Guides
leavingcertenglish.net is a resource for all Leaving Certificate English students. In 2011, I decided to get my notes online because I was fed up of spending all my time photocopying. Since then, the blog took off, I won a teaching award, appeared on telly, wrote some articles, did some radio interviews and generally got sick of the sound of my own voice (now I know how my students feel!).
I’m currently working for the JCT (Junior Cycle for Teachers) as an English advisor, which is really interesting… but I miss my students loads.
I like key lime pie, tablequiz.net, the pixies, david fincher movies and trampolines.
