Her undergraduate dissertation was an investigation into the benefits, challenges, and future development of Classics Education in Primary Schools in Northern Ireland. Amber is chair of the Classical Association in Northern Ireland, and sits on the Central Council of the Classical Association of Ireland. She is a primary school teacher and weaves as many elements of Latin, Greek, and the ancient world through her lessons as she possibly can. Amber has just completed the first year of her MA in Classical Studies with the Open University.
What Amber says about the Belfast Summer School: "I'm so looking forward to teaching again this year at the Summer School. When COVID hit I was so sad that we couldn't join again in Queen's to teach but when we went online I had a blast! The school is such a brilliant place to meet new, like-minded people from all walks of life and to learn an ancient language or two along the way. I've been so lucky to have made so many new friends through teaching (and, at one stage, learning!) at the school. I can't wait to get back to my laptop this year, and finally back to my whiteboard at Queen's! See you there!"
