Hi , I’m Clodagh Brennan! I’m from Maynooth. I graduated from DIT, now TUD, in 2017 with a degree in Music. In my degree I specialised in music education. I’m currently in my first year of the masters for primary education in DCU and my specialism for my current study is science.
I applied to the STEM Teacher Internship program to expand my knowledge of the world of STEM, which I hope to include in my future lessons. The internship will provide concrete experience with STEM careers and allow me to teach in a more meaningful way. Although I have a wealth of experience in the arts, I have a strong interest in science and I am extremely keen to learn about the world of STEM. I feel that through the internship, I will become a more rounded primary school teacher.
I’m delighted to have accepted a role at Fidelity Investments for summer 2021. Fidelity Investments is a company dedicated to making financial expertise accessible and has a location based in Dublin. My internship will most likely be done remotely for the duration of the internship. Fidelity have been amazing at answering all my questions and I am really looking forward to working with them. I am really excited about learning more about the company and my training in coding, and I hope to use this knowledge in my future lessons.
