Welcome to P4C!
My name is Dee Collis and this is my ninth year of teaching and sixth year at St Andrew's College Junior School. I have an Undergraduate degree in Psychology from Dublin Business School, a Masters in Child Psychology from Kingston University London and my Postgraduate in Primary Education from Hibernia College. I also completed a Masters in Leadership in Education from DCU this year. I am also qualified in Special Needs Assisting, Lámh, have certified training in Literacy and am a Droichead mentor.
I aim to create a safe, fun, structured learning environment for all of the pupils in my class. I use many different methodologies to cater for each educational need and learning style in my class and recognise that each child learns and retains information differently.
I encourage the children to ask as many questions as they like and to be as involved in their own learning as they can be. I also like to involve parents as much as possible.
I look forward to and feel privileged to have another fantastic year at St Andrew's College ahead of me!
