New Staff September ’18
This year we are delighted to welcome four new teachers to our Headfort teaching team. Our new staff members bring with them new experiences and skills that they are enthusiastic to share, and are looking forward to working with the Headfort children and staff.
Javier has a degree in Primary Education and a background in Physical Therapy and Sports. He comes to Headfort from Madrid, where he worked as a Learning Support Teacher. Javier is in fact a past Headfort intern student and will teach Spanish and junior Geography and Science.
Kate whom we introduced in our last communication, but just in case you missed her, Kate studied at the Grennan Equestrian College and comes highly recommended by Bridgette McCarthy, manager at the college. Kate is qualified to Level 3 to teach riding and has experience as a riding instructress in Shelmalier Riding School.

She holds a BA Honours in Education and has completed her Post Graduate Certificate in Education. Anna has extensive experience in both the UK and Irish National School Systems.
