Professor Brian MacCraith, President of Dublin City University
DCU is delighted to play a central role in the development of Teachers Inspire. This is a significant national initiative that recognises the transformative role played by so many teachers in the lives of individuals and in the advancement of communities in Ireland.
As the son of two teachers, you could say that the profession, and my passion for education, is in my DNA. They and others inspired in me a love of knowledge, its pursuit, and the joy of imparting knowledge and wisdom.
