Rosemary Mulhall

Rosemary Mulhall is a native of Ireland, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Studies from Institute of Technology, Tralee, Ireland, and another Bachelor’s in Nutrition from Dublin Institute of Technology/Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. Most recently, she had earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Louisville. She has a variety of experiences working with children, including teaching English as a Second Language to teenage students from different parts of Europe, Asia and South Africa, coaching and training children for the Enis Track club in Ireland, and working as a short and long term substitute teacher in the Archdiocese of Louisville and Jefferson County Public Schools. She is excited to be teaching science to fourth and fifth grade students.

In her free time, Mrs. Mulhall loves to be outside – running, hiking, cycling, and playing tennis with her husband. Since she has moved to Kentucky, she has also begun gardening. She loves meeting new people in school and church and keeping in touch with family and friends in Ireland.

"My goal is to help students reach their full potential, empowering them to be independent thinkers and problem-solvers."

Q & A with Mrs. Mulhall

 

 

Passion:

I am passionate about providing a safe and nurturing environment for students in which they are willing to ask questions, learn from their mistakes and work together.

Philosophy:

My goal is to help students reach their full potential, empowering them to be independent thinkers and problem-solvers. Giving them meaningful and challenging tasks, I want to encourage them to persist and overcome challenges.

Favorite part of teaching:

I look forward to working with young people every day. I like cultivating their academic and spiritual growth. I enjoy seeing them become independent thinkers and problem-solvers.

Favorite teaching memory:

During my teaching placement as a graduate student, I brought into class a pebble to go with a shared reading I was teaching. In the context of the story, I told students that the pebble was a wishing stone. After I finished story, students got to hold it and make a wish. A year later, when I went back to the school as a substitute, a student from the class saw me in the corridor and asked if I still had the pebble. I was so pleased she remembered me and that my story made a strong impression on her. This incident really made my day!

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

I have been at St. Martha for only a short while, but have felt genuinely welcomed and fully supported—this school and parish have a strong sense of community, similar to the one I experienced growing up in rural Ireland.

My hope for my students:

My hope is for students to be mindful of the needs of others, generous in sharing their talents and skills, and as the German poet, Goethe, states, that they will have “roots and wings.”

Fun fact:

Having grown up on a farm, I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as I can. I have been running cross country competitive since I was a teen, and continue to run regularly. I also like to hike, cycle and play tennis with my husband. Since moving to Kentucky, I have taken up gardening—I have sowed delicious tomatoes, squash, beets and kale, all plants we did not have in Ireland. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, especially at school and church. I also keep in touch with my family (especially my little nieces and nephews) and friends in Ireland. I have played Irish traditional music on fiddle since I was young.
