Siobhan Hackett, a graduate of Crawford College of Art in Cork with a Diploma in Educational Psychology, has many years' experience in dealing with teenagers. Her understanding of adolescents and the issues that trouble them has made her a source of comfort, wisdom and trust for young people. Added to this is her passionate interest in the many and differing ways that students learn, which can often prevent them enjoying the experience of school life if left unaddressed.
Siobhan is the Learning Support Coordinator at the Ursuline Secondary School, Thurles, teaching Learning Support, Resource and Art. She lives in Tipperary with her husband and two children.
