I am currently a practicing second level teacher. I taught Gifted and Talented Children at the Centre for Talented Youth in Dublin City University for 17 years from when it’s first summer programme was established in 1993. I taught children from ages 6 to 17 years on CTYI programmes, drafting and delivering courses on World History, Irish History, Government and Society, Political Science, Geopolitics and also International Relations. I have tutored parents, teachers and school inspectors on the Gifted and Talented Course provided by ICEPE, for which I have also written. I maintain an advocacy blog for gifted education at and I co-founded and developed a support network for parents with Exceptionally-Able and Twice Exceptional children in Ireland. I have delivered lectures to trainee teachers on the inclusion of gifted children in the classroom.
