||My name is Julie Collins and I come from Tralee, Co. Kerry. I have a BA in Montessori education. I studied locally at St. Nicholas College in Dunlaoghaire. I have always had a particular interest in the area of special needs and worked for some time with students on the autistic spectrum disorder. I completed a postgraduate Diploma in Special Education from Froebel NUI Maynooth. I have been working in St Oliver Plunkett NS for the past 6 years. I am very dedicated to my job and enjoy working with staff and students here.
