With a passion for Early Years Education Conor says she was initially drawn to teaching in Prep after becoming a mother herself.

“There are so many things I love about being a Prep teacher. 

“An obvious one is the big growth in learning that we get to see from the beginning to the end of the Prep year.”   

When speaking about her favourite thing about being a Prep teacher, Conor says she enjoys planning new and fun experiences for her students.

“I love to hear their funny stories and sing different songs together.”   

“As a Prep teacher I am most passionate about connecting with each of the children in my care and I believe that if I can develop a good relationship with my students, I can best support them as learners.”   

Conor added she loves being part of the St Peter Chanel Catholic Primary School community.   

“Being part of a faith filled learning community, I believe I am teaching children to be able to operate better in our future society,” she said.   

“Through the school’s faith, we teach our children to demonstrate compassion towards others and that everyone is created in the likeness of God.”   ​
