Have a read about each of our teachers and look at the lovely portraits of them that have been done by students!

 

 

Príomhoide Jenny

Is mise Príomhoide Jenny. My work started here in June 2019 and its an exciting time to be involved. I'm delighted to be working with so many great teachers and students (as well as their parents).

When I was a child I went to a school a bit like this one. There were boys and girls and people from lots of different backgrounds and religions learning together, it was great. I have taught for over 15 years in multi denomination & co-educational schools at primary & post primary level. I love teaching because I’m always learning something new about other people and myself.

 

Múinteoir Áine

Hi! I'm Múinteoir Áine. This year I'm teaching 1st & 2nd class which I'm really excited about. I love the ethos in a CNS and how all children get to come to school and enjoy each other's company. I love teaching music and P.E., I can even play a few instruments!

Múinteoir Seamus

Hi, I am Múinteoir Séamus. I am extremely happy to be teaching in Ashbourne CNS. I have taught in the Community National School model for the previous eight years. It is a model and an ethos that I firmly believe in. I will offer the children a welcoming and inclusive classroom. A classroom that is full of discovery and learning. My favourite subjects to teach are PE, Maths, Gaeilge and History.

 

Múinteoir Róisín

Hi! I'm Múínteoir Róisín. I love doing project work and learning lots about history along with my class. My favourite thing to do in school is to get all the kids using iPads or other technology to enhance their learning. We might even have a few software engineers by the end of the year! My goal for this school year is to do one exam in a musical instrument. 

 

Múinteoir Muireann

Dia duit! Múinteoir Muireann is ainm dom. I am a Support Teacher for all classes in Ashbourne CNS. My job is to help pupils in-class through station work, and in small groups in Room 6 with literacy and numeracy. I love getting to know all the children I teach and teaching them strategies to help them learn to the best of their ability.

Múinteoir Caroline

Is mise Múinteoir Caroline. I am super excited to be working with all the boys and girls in Ashbourne CNS this year! I plan to sing and dance throughout my day in senior infants and bring an atmosphere of positivity with me! My favourite subjects to teach are Music, PE and Science. I can't wait for the year ahead, let it be a good one!

 

Múinteoir Eoin

Is mise Múinteoir Eoin and I am delighted to be the Junior Infants teacher at Ashbourne CNS. Our classroom is a positive, fun, and inclusive learning environment where every single child is made to feel both valued and welcomed. My favourite subjects to teach are English and Maths and I really like to see the children engaged in fun and exciting hands-on learning activities. “Play is a child’s work” This belief is the foundation of everything we do in our classroom.

 

Múinteoir Anna

Hi, I’m Múinteoir Anna. I’m delighted to be working as a Special Education Teacher in Ashbourne CNS. I’m lucky in that my role means that I get to work with more than one class. This year I am thrilled to be supporting Junior and Senior infants, both in class and in small group settings. I adore bringing lots of fun ways to engage learning within the classroom and working with the children to reach their full potential.
