Hi, I’m Kieran Norton! I am currently studying my Bachelor of Science Degree with concurrent Teacher Education. My Specialisms are Physical Sciences with Chemistry and Physics. I have a keen interest in sport and I like to keep fit, I play hurling, football, soccer and go to the gym.
I hope to build more confidence and knowledge of the subjects am I studying. This will help me towards completing my degree. I also hope to develop new skills in the roles I am in.
I see it as a great opportunity to try something new and different to what I am studying in college. I think it is important to gain this experience to see what working in the real world is like and gain new skills which I can bring back to the classroom. I also see it as a challenge to try and adapt to whatever role I am given.
