Hi, I’m Amy! I’m from Mayo. I have recently completed my first year of the Professional Masters of Education in NUI Galway. My subjects are Biology and Chemistry.
I didn’t have the opportunity to complete any placement throughout my undergraduate degree. As a result I really felt that I lacked experience/knowledge of what it would be like to work in a STEM related career outside of the classroom. I hope to gain new skills along the way that I can bring with me into the classroom in the future.
I joined the business consulting team at EY. My role involved helping the team with the organisation of PowerPoint slides, updating excel files, researching tasks, organising meetings and many other tasks along the way. EY also have an excellent learning program in place for their employees. This involves access to a wide variety of training courses in which I had the opportunity to complete throughout my internship. I focused mainly on advancing my skills with excel and Powerpoint along with improving my confidence in public speaking by taking a course in presentation skills. I look forward to using these new skills to create lesson plans that will motivate and engage all my future students.
