About the Author

Laura is an English and History teacher in St. Caimin’s Community School, Shannon, Co. Clare. She is an experienced Leaving Cert and Junior Cycle examiner and reviews educational content for Gill and Studyclix. Laura has been part of the RTE 2FM exam sessions, where she has spoken at length about the best way to approach exam questions. 
Laura is passionate about making her classes accessible and enjoyable for all students and incorporates a lot of co-operative learning into her lessons. Laura does not believe one has to have the often-mentioned “flair” for English to achieve high marks. She believes there is a formula for all parts of the paper if you break it down and practise as much as possible, and it is this approach she has brought to Junior Cycle Success.
