Sinead O’Keeffe

Sinead's enthusiasm for teaching becomes obvious when you see they way her pupils respond in her lessons. Born and educated in Ireland, Sinead is relatively new to Thailand, but obviously not to teaching. Sinead enjoys working with learning materials and uses inquiry-based learning to encourage students to discover thinghs for themselves and ask questions. This, she believes, leads to better critical thinking later on in their studies
