He has taught Science to students of all ages in High School and has held leadership roles including Head of Department and Head of Year. He is also an IB Examiner in Chemistry.


As a teacher, Frank has adhered to a constructivist philosophy in his teaching. Science is an investigative field and it is best learnt through a student-centered approach.

He is committed to ensuring his students grow to be independent and confident young leaders.


Frank has travelled extensively and it is many years since he left his native Ireland. He enjoys the international context and being a part of and building a multinational community. With this in mind, he is a committed international teacher striving to deliver quality education with international-mindedness. He is excited to return to Poland and be a part of the Embassy School.
