Career Highlights

Hi! I’m Sophie, I was born in France and I moved to Ireland when I was 19. I have over 15 years’ teaching experience and I have been training educators for 10… time flies when you travel and teach English! I have lived and worked in Poland, the Czech Republic, Ireland and Oman, and I am now based in Belfast where I live with my husband and my son. I have been specialising in EAL and literacy over the last few years;  it is such a rewarding teaching experience! I have been researching multilingualism and how to use our learners’ mother tongues in the classroom. I run a multilingual story club called Tongues and Tales where people come and tell stories in various languages, which we then all discuss in English. It’s lots of fun! In my free time, I collect international children’s books, I swim in the cold Irish sea and I doodle!
