Bio: I am a language and history teacher from the west of Ireland. Opinions on current affairs and education policy development are informed by the realities of my profession. Anything I write here is done so in my personal capacity and is entirely my own opinion! I have chosen to remain incognito for the simple fact that I am a currently employed as a teacher and  as I often write from personal experience, I do not want to cause controversy or unintentionally hurt others. That is not to say that my position will not change in the future. If you wish to contact me personally, I would love to hear from you at irishgermanteacher@yahoo.com

  1. Hello Miss De Búrca,
    I enjoy your posts very much and am thinking that it’d be nice to meet/ Skype you in real life, given that we seem to be working through the same issues on our blogs. I share your view on the importance of faith formation even though I haven’t written about it yet.
    I’m a fairly young male teacher (nearly qualified). Is there any way I could DM you? Maybe you could follow me on Twitter? @antimire
