Ms Aelish Collins has been teaching in Ballysax since 1999 and became Deputy Principal in 2007. She is currently one of our Special Education Teachers. She supports children’s learning in so many different ways, both in the children’s individual classroom or in her own room. Action Literacy and Ready Set Go Maths are two of the station teaching methodologies used in the school and Ms Collins makes an immense input to both of these initiatives.
Ms Collins is a proud Co Clare woman and she has a huge interest in sport. She is the Cumann na mBunscol representative for our school and she is involved in training the boys’ Gaelic football teams. Ms Collins takes pleasure in following the sporting journeys of many of our past pupils also, and can often be seen on the sideline of local matches.
