Meet our Teachers

Jessica (Teacher)

Hi there! I'm Jessica, I'm 23 and I'm originally from Celbridge, Co Kildare. I studied Early Childhood Education in DCU and graduated in 2020. Since then, I've tried my hand at some acting and animation courses and have moved here to Galway!

 

I love music, baking, being outdoors, and animals. In afterschool, I hope we can create a wonderful environment where children can play with their friends, relax after the school day, and have fun being kids! I'll be organising indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts, and baking activities, so there's sure to be something for everyone to enjoy! Jessica has also spent time working in another after school service and we are so glad to have her experience on board!

Gabriella (Manager and Teacher)

I am an enthusiastic Masters graduate in Teacher Training and Education Science. I am  committed to support in a holistic way the learning and personal growth of children under my care. As a positive, open minded and caring person with a high level of professionalism, I believe I can contribute to the creation of new ideas and innovative activities in Waldorf-Steiner afterschool.

I was studying in Mathias Bel University in Slovakia. During my studies in 2019 I completed Erasmus program at Åbo Akademi University in Finland which is reputed to have one of the best education systems in the world. As part of my course I had the opportunity to teach for one academic year in Vasa Övningsskola, a local primary school. While in university in Finland  I wrote my thesis on a comparative study of education in Finland and Slovakia. In 2020 I came to Ireland to commence a graduate internship as a primary school teacher for Slovak children in Dublin which took place every Saturday. During this period I was employed in Sonas Early Learning Centre in Galway where I had the responsibility for preschool children.
