Hands down the BEST teacher I've ever had. The most dedicated teacher of all time, no exceptions. This woman loves Mathematics. I got an A1 in Mathematics and it is a credit to her work really. She always believes in her students immaterial of their ability. Fantastic teacher. I would almost recommend moving to CBC Cork solely to experience her teaching.
