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 Dun Laoghaire. I have always had a particular interest in the area of special needs and worked for some time with students on the autistic spectrum. I completed a postgraduate Diploma in Special Education from Froebel NUI Maynooth. I am very dedicated to my job and enjoy working with staff and students in St. Oliver Plunkett N.S.

Hi, my name is Louise and I work in Room 4 with Ms. Collins. I joined the school in September 2023.I previously worked in Monkstown Educate Together and St. Brigids NBS. 

I love being an SNA. Everyday in the classroom is an adventure filled with learning, curiosity and lots of fun! Together with my colleague’s I am proud to be part of a team that believes in making a difference in the lives of these exceptional children.

Outside of school I am busy running after and feeding 3 teenage boys!
