Sadhbh Bhreathnach has been head of the Gaeilge Department since 2013. She has endeavoured to bring the breadth of Montessori Philosophy into the practice of teaching Gaeilge to young children ensuring that the graduates of the college can use their unique knowledge of language acquisition through Montessori teaching methods into the classroom.
She took over as Stage 3 Year Head in 2015 which incorporates the coordination of Special education & Primary School Placements for all the Level 7 Award stage students.
Sadhbh started her career with L’Oreal, working her way up to a Product Manager in the Marketing Department over the course of 7 years with the company. She was then head hunted by Stillwater Communications who were looking for a fluent Irish speaker to become the Marketing Director of their growing Communications company. After starting her family, her career took a change of course and she began teaching Gaeilge in St.Patricks College, Drumcondra to trainee Primary school teachers which she enjoyed for 5 years. A move to Wicklow caused her to look for similar work closer to home and she found herself taking the job of Gaeilge lecturer with St Nicholas Montessori College and from there her responsibilities within the college have continued to expand, now incorporating the role of Marketing Director for the School, College and Teacher’s association.
