BECKY

Before joining the team at GSETNS I worked in special and mainstream settings in London and Ireland. I have a particular interest in the early years and inclusion. In my free time I enjoy swimming, yoga and family walks with my 2 young children.

CAITRÍONA

I am the School Secretary and First Responder for GSETNS. I believe I am extremely lucky to have found such a wonderful place to work.

I have been here since the school opened in 2019 and have enjoyed watching it grow with new children and additional staff each year. We have a wonderful school community who it is now possible to greet within the school after all the restrictions have been lifted. In my spare time I enjoy my family time and playing padel and hockey.

CÍARÁN

I started my teaching career as a music teacher in 2004. I am so proud to teach in an Educate Together school and feel lucky to be part of a school in its early days. My two children also attend an Educate Together. I am particularly interested in activating pupil voice and global citizenship. I became Deputy Principal of our school this year. I am enjoying working closely with our Principal Diane as we work together to ensure our school vision is at the forefront of all our decisions.

I started my teaching career in New Zealand in 2006 and am so delighted to be now teaching in an Educate Together School. My areas of passion are literacy and all sports related activities. I have worked in a number of roles with children from Junior Infants to 6th Class. I joined GSETNS in 2020 and have enjoyed working in SEN, EAL and as a classroom-based teacher.

JAYNA

I am passionate about supporting and guiding children to reach their best potential in all aspects of their primary school journey. I enjoy teaching and doing Arts & Crafts and have an interest in travelling to experience all cultures.

PATRÍCIA

My name is Patricia and since I moved to Ireland I have been working in early years education until I started in Goatstown ETNS as an English as an Additional language teacher. Outside of school I love exploring new places, hiking, running and traveling. 

RICARDO

I’m a teacher from Brazil. I trained as a History teacher, but life led me to the rewarding path of teaching English as an Additional Language (EAL) here in Goatstown ETNS.
In my free time I love to play guitar, now I’m learning the cello and harmonica, it’s where I find my peace and joy.
My classroom is a mix of cultures, just like me. I aim to make it a cozy space where every pupil feels seen and heard.
Teaching is more than books; it’s about forging connections. Using music, I share my passion, witnessing students grow not just academically, but as complete individuals.  

HANNAH

My name is Hannah and I am the EAL teacher. I have been teaching English as an additional language since 2018 and have taught here in Ireland and abroad to students from all over the world. Outside of school I enjoy cooking, yoga and reading.
