I have a varied background in education, having worked across a range of sectors. I initially undertook a degree in Special Education and worked in a day centre for people with learning disabilities. I then went on to work in Further Education, where I taught on varying childcare courses, Access to Education courses, and health and social care. I moved on to teach in Higher Education, where my specialism was learning disability studies. This led me to teach on varying early years degrees. I have also led a Foundation degree in Early Childhood studies. I have taught on the Post Graduate Certificate in Education, and continue to have a keen interest across all areas of adult education and learning. I am a link tutor and collaborative partner to Chevron Training in Ireland.
I am currently a module leader for two Level 4 modules. I am also a module leader for distance learning undergraduate students. I supervise level 6 dissertation students both on campus and via the distance learning route. I am a personal tutor to students across levels 4, 5 and 6. I teach on the Early Childhood Studies and Special Education degrees.
