Seamas Cassidy, Teachers Inspire 2019 Awardee
All of us had a good teacher at sometime in our lives, a good teacher who was innovative... who inspired us to think for ourselves.
Seamas Cassidy was one of the four awardees to receive the Desmond Award at the inaugural Teachers Inspire gala in 2019. Now retired, Seamas taught at Tuam CBS, County Galway. He was selected not only for the profound impact he had on the life of his nominator but also his local community. Seamas’s passion for teaching was renowned locally and he was described as a “pioneering adult who helped young people to believe in themselves as individuals and to think for themselves.”
