Rebecca Hanley

Rebecca is a creative, organized, and motivated kindergarten teacher who has a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Teaching and Learning. Her long-term career ambition is to work for Apple Education, training other teachers on how to use technology in the classroom. In addition to educating Ireland’s youth, Rebecca is passionate about AsIAm – Ireland’s National Autism Charity and Advocacy organisation. She thinks that they are doing wonderful work in advocating and providing support and resources to people on the autistic spectrum including their families. She believes that people on the spectrum see the world in a different and beautiful way. This should be celebrated and respected by communities. If everyone was educated in understanding autism, she believes our country would be a better place. Rebecca is also passionate about Period.org – a global non-profit organisation that aims to end period poverty and stigma. She believes that all girls and women should have access to affordable menstrual care. Girls should not feel ashamed of something as natural as a period and she thinks it is important to start the conversation and educate boys and girls in schools around Ireland.
