Teaching Interests


"Children are like tiny flowers; they are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and glorious when seen in a community of peers,"  Friedrich Froebel.        

My teaching is based on the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel (1782-1842) who advocated reverence for every child, learning through activity, exploration of the environment and acceptance of the gifts of each individual. I have the privilege to teach, inspire and create with the next generation of teachers within MU's teacher education programme. Inspiring my students is a role I take seriously. Together we are working for future generations. An integral part of my teaching is connecting theory and practice.My main research areas are The Life and Work of Douglas Hyde and Environmental Sustainable Education. My main teaching interests are Cumas na Gaeilge, Litríocht na Gaeilge, Dubhghlas de hÍde, Climate Action and Climate Change, History of Education.  The learning experience through participation in my module EDF485 Teanga an Ghrá is grounded in a pedagogy of community engaged learning via An Tairseach which was awarded a Project Live teaching bursary. I am module coordinator for EDF225, EDF447, EDF627, EDF485, EDF126, EDF446, EDF602A, EDF621.
