Ms Maria Houlihan works as a Special Education Teacher. She previously taught infants for many years. She particularly likes working with this age-group as she has an avid interest in early childhood development. She really enjoys guiding the children in so many ways and in helping them to reach their important milestones. In the Infant classroom a variety of methodologies are used such as Aistear and station teaching.
Ms Houlihan promotes exercise in the school and introduced a Walking/Running track to the school which has been enjoyed by the children, and indeed, their families. Ms Houlihan is a native of Co Kildare and she plays on the Rathangan LGFA team. She brings this interest to school and she trains the girls’ Gaelic Football teams from u10s to Senior Level.
