David Hobson

David is currently teaching at Loreto on the Green, Dublin, and will be presented with his award by IOP President, Professor Dame Julia Higgins, at our annual Awards Dinner in London on 20 November.

David’s citation noted that: ‘David is a true educator who believes in the holistic value of education and contextualises physics. He has successfully raised and maintained the uptake of senior physics and consistently supports his colleagues, helping those whose specialism is not physics to teach the subject. As a Year Head he has provided pastoral guidance to students, while in teaching he has always been willing to give students extra support to ensure their understanding. He has contributed to conferences, meetings and projects, fulfilling a great need in Irish education by giving accurate, timely and helpful advice. Not only is David highly respected in his own school, he is held in high regard in the wider education community’.
