Hi there, My Name is Colm I’m from Sligo, but I have been living in Drumcondra for the past four academic years. I have just finished my final year in Primary Teaching at DCU and I am due to graduate this coming Autumn. The area I chose to specialise in during my degree was Digital Learning. I’m now currently looking for and applying to teaching jobs around Dublin.
I applied to the STInt Teacher Internship Programme to gain some real-world experience and an understanding of what STEM would be like as a career. I hope to gain an insight into STEM industries from this internship that I could bring into the classroom. I hope to use this insight I gain to positively influence my approaches to teaching STEM within the Primary School. I also hope to provide opportunities for students to enjoy and develop their skills in STEM and also to understand the importance of STEM in our world. Finally I hope to show children the many opportunities that STEM can provide for them right into their future as they are the next generation.
I’m delighted to have accepted a role at Microsoft for summer 2021. Microsoft are a multinational technology company based in Leopardstown. My internship will most likely be done remotely but may move to a hybrid style of working later in the summer, I would love the opportunity to go on site and experience the day to day life in Microsoft. I have spoken to my mentors and I am awaiting to be assigned to a team and buddy at this time. I hope to develop and gain new skills and friendships throughout my 2021 summer internship. I am really looking forward to starting this new experience.
