Mary Cunneen

Mary Cunneen was a secondary school teacher of English and Mathematics for over twenty years, before returning to University College Dublin to undertake an M.A. on the induction and mentoring of new principals followed by a PhD on the career labyrinths of female teachers. Employing a life history perspective, Mary’s doctoral research examines the factors which influence female teachers’ decisions to pursue (or not) a pathway to principalship. Currently at the fieldwork stage, Mary hopes to complete her research by 2014. She has already presented on aspects of her research at a number of conferences, and has several publications forthcoming.
