Miss Gillan

I am a Principal of a post primary school. I have wanted to teach all my life - I am driven every day to be there for children - to help them find their worth in this challenging world.


My mother was and is my inspiration - she brought the seven of us up on her own - losing her husband at the young age of 42 when myself and my twin were 8 months old , the eldest being 13- she taught us resilience  - to never give up, to be positive, fair and just.

I struggled at school academically but my teachers inspired me and helped me to believe in myself - I'm passing this on

I believe in the quotation by Rita Pierson “ Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can be.
