Hi, my name is Miss Coyne and I am the teacher in Hedgehog Class. I was trained in Ireland and got my degree in Primary Education and Gaeilge. I moved to England some years ago and although I do not teach the Irish language here, I have fallen in love with the creativity and uniqueness of teaching in England. I love teaching practical maths and engaging the children in role play activities. My real passion lies in music. I have completed all 8 grades on the piano and I have travelled to Germany with the Ryan Youth Orchestra playing as first chair violinist for 6 years. In the classroom, children of any age can sing, play an instrument and enjoy music. Where music allows you to compose, improvise and gain self-esteem, there are no wrong answers! Seeing the magical moments of the team at St. John’s work together allow the children to feel safe, confident and excited for learning.
