Teaching Staff

Ms Marie Kavanagh

Ms Marie Kavanagh is the latest teacher to have been welcomed to St Brigid’s NS, Ballysax. Ms Kavanagh teaches 6th class and brings a depth of experience to our school in working with this age-group. Ms Kavanagh enjoys finding the strengths in the personalities and abilities of her class and encourages them to use these strengths to become independent learners. These strategies will be used by the children not just in Ballysax, but in their transition to secondary school.

Ms Kavanagh has a strong background in science and she loves sharing her knowledge and experience with her class. Although Ms Kavanagh is originally a native of Co Carlow, she is a keen Kildare GAA supporter. She helps to train the boys’ Gaelic football teams with Ms Aelish Collins.
