In his second year teaching English at Saint Thomas Academy, David O'Connell loves working at STA because of the” daily creative and professional challenge of finding the best method and strategy for making learning not only fun, but meaningful for every student. The best education opens new doors of thought, experience and perception, I am happiest when I see students open new doors through their learning”. On his bucket list, David would like to finish a novel and a collection of short stories, and travel through both Australia and New Zealand.
