Where are you from in Ireland?
What country are you teaching in?
What is the name of your school?
Scuola Europea di Varese
What’s the best thing about where you live now?
I love the European environment in which I work and I love that I can step outside the gates of school and live an Italian lifestyle. Switzerland is only 30 minutes away and Rome is only 3 hours away on the high-speed train. Living here and teaching Irish is like a dream come true; in the sense that you really have access to many different worlds as well as bring something uniquely Irish to the mix. It is this that makes me so proud to share on occasions like St. Patrick’s Day.
Name 3 things you miss from home
I also miss being in my garden.
I suppose I would also have to confess to missing cod and chips from Manor Street takeaway.
What do you think makes a great teacher?
