Katie Owen

Nursery Teacher


Education: Degree(s)  A Post Graduate Certificate of Education from Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, United Kingdom. Bachelors Degree in Modern Foreign Languages and European Studies from the University of Bath, Bath, United Kingdom.

Although I only joined IPS in January 2016, this is my tenth year working as a full-time educator; I worked as a primary school teacher in International schools in Russia and Ukraine before coming to the Republic.

Although I love to teach in Early Years settings, I have worked in classrooms at every level from Reception to Year 4 and enjoy the challenges that each age group brings.

As a teacher, I am particularly passionate about what inquiry and concept-based instruction look like in the Early Years and seek to learn new ways of integrating mathematics and language learning with units of inquiry. I have chose to join the faculty here because the mission truly resonates with me and because we are confident that our children will receive an outstanding education from our colleagues.
