Ann Murray is a Lecturer in Education at Hibernia College.  She brings to this role a wealth of practical experience working with students, teachers, school leaders and a range of educational/clinical specialists.

For more than two decades, Ann has contributed actively to the development of innovative practices in primary and post primary schools and classrooms in Ireland.  In her work with the National Behavior Support Service Ann had the opportunity on a national basis to evolve the groundwork she had established in her own school for building and implementing school-wide systems, structures and strategies to promote positive behaviour for learning.  This work also encompassed planning, providing and supporting the continued professional development of teachers in both primary and post-primary schools, including the on-going facilitation of teachers’ communities of practice.
