Maggie Doherty is an invaluable part of the SEN team in Carrickfergus Academy. She would do anything for you, is fiercely loyal and most importantly really cares about the pupils. She builds effective relationships, gets to know them, their families, their strengths and their worries and breaks down every barrier through sheer care, understanding and patience.
Maggie goes above and beyond for her pupils- from purchasing equipment for them at her own expense to getting up early, walking across the town to be help support and walk pupils to school -Maggie does not believe in allowing pupils to give up on themselves.
The pupils that Maggie has worked with over the years have achieved more than their potential because ultimately Maggie makes them believe in themselves. Can’t speak highly enough of her!
