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.

This is me on a good day, most of the time I don’t wear make-up and look vaguely harrassed but this is the internet so, whahey,  I can pretend I always look this well groomed.

I like key lime pie, tablequiz.net, the pixies, david fincher movies and trampolines.

If you’d like to contact me, for any reason, please use the Feedback button which is hovering on the left-hand-side of the site.
