Therese McDevitt

Teacher - Year 3 de Paul 1

Therese began her teaching career in 1985 on the west coast of Tasmania at Queenstown. In 1987 she returned to Hobart and taught for a further ten years on middle and upper primary grades before undertaking the role of 'Assistant Principal - Primary' at Mount Carmel College, as well as continuing a Class Teacher role.

A desire to follow her passion, classroom teaching, along with a wish to experience a different educational setting, led her to become a member of the Dominic College community in 2015.
