Cuirim le teagasc agus measúnú ar Chúrsaí B.Oid. agus TICO i Staidéar Oideachais, Litearthacht, Uimhearthacht, An Domhan Thart Orainn agus achair eile curaclam bunscoile trí mheán na Gaeilge. Bím ag teagasc ar mhodúil máistreachta ar chúrsa inseirbhíse M.Oid. sa Choláiste agus déanaim miontráchtais máistreachta M-Leibhéal a stiúradh. Déanaim ábhair agus áiseanna teagaisc a mhúnlú agus a aistriú do léachtaí sa Choláiste agus tugaim tacaíocht litearthachta do na mic leinn lán-Ghaeilge. Is comhalta Boird mé agus is Cathaoirleach an Fho-choiste Oideachais mé ar Chomhairle na Gaelscolaíochta. Is ball mé de chraobhchoiste Ceardchumann Ollscoile agus Coláiste. Is ball mé de Bhord Gobharnóirí Bhunscoil Phobal Feirste.



Bainim tairbhe as an diminsean idirnáisiúnta ag Coláiste Ollscoile Naomh Muire. Is comhordaitheoir Erasmus mé. Bhí deis agam cuairt a thabhairt ar thíortha eile a bhfuil córas tumoideachais acu: An Bhreatain Bheag, Albain, Tír na mBascach, Fryslận agus an Danmhairg.



I contribute to the teaching and assessment of BEd and PGCE courses in Education Studies, Literacy, Numeracy, the World Around Us and other primary curriculum learning areas through the medium of Irish. I teach on MEd modules and also supervise M-level dissertations. I produce teaching resources and materials in Irish for lectures and I provide literacy support for IM students. I am a board member of Comhairle na Gaelscolaíochta and chair of its Education SubCommittee. I am a member of the St Mary’s UCU Branch Committee and a member of the Board of Governors of Bunscoil Phobal Feirste.



I have benefitted from the international dimension of St Mary’s. I am an Erasmus Coordinator. I have had the opportunity to visit other countries which have immersion education systems: Wales, Scotland, Fryslận, the Basque Country and Denmark.
