Jennifer began teaching at Ashfield College in 2012. She is extremely passionate about both English and Geography alike. She recognises the importance of the English language and the multitude of skills associated with it – not only as part of the Leaving Certificate syllabus for the subject itself but also across all other subjects, especially now that such emphasis is placed on literacy in education. In addition, having completed a Master of Arts (MA) in Geography, she aims to promote the subject among students in order for them to recognise its importance in a world plagued by environmental problems and issues of sustainability. She believes that building a strong rapport with her students is of the utmost importance – this helps her to encourage her students to realise their full potential academically while also enabling her to build up their self-belief.
