The Heart of Teaching - Podcast Interview



Recently, I had the absolute pleasure of being interviewed by the wonderful Dr. Aoife Lynam of Hibernia College as part of series two of their teaching podcast, The Heart of Teaching.

We had a really lovely discussion about all things literacy and playful learning.

We talked about some of my favourite texts for teachers and children, my journey in education so far, and some of the motivations behind my interest in literacy development.

You can listen to the full interview and other previous episodes on The Heart of Teaching, here.
