Hi , I’m Arlene! I’m a Primary school teacher. I attended Dublin City University and graduated with a Bachelor of Education in 2019. I strive for a high level of professionalism and I am constantly trying to evolve as an educator. I have a high interest in the area of digital learning and computational materials. I engage in reflective practice often as It keeps my lessons interesting and my students engaged. The STint programme would help me progress in my career and develop new skills.
Last year , I got accepted to the STint programme and attended the meet and greet in DCU and engaged fully up to the point where I found out, that due to personal reasons, I could no longer participate. This year I hope to engage wholeheartedly with the programme. I think it is a fantastic programme and I admire how much it has evolved even in a single year with companies and locations. I think it is an exciting opportunity for teachers to try a different professional field and develop professional skills to bring back to their educational role.
