Junior Cycle reform is one of the most significant changes the Irish education system has undertaken. We are in year six of the change process and the perspective of Irish teachers implementing this change has not yet been fully heard. I am inviting teachers nationwide to come share your experiences and concerns around the reform process. It is an opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with colleagues in a relaxed and social environment. I am a 30-year, fulltime science teacher who is undertaking a Doctorate in Education in TCD. I have taught in the Inter Cert., the Junior Cert. and now the Junior Cycle. I have experienced educational change from the trenches. Because of my personal experience I am interested in what teachers think and have to say about Junior Cycle reform. I aim to give audience and influence to the teacher voice in the conversations on educational change and the role of teachers in that change.
