Hi I’m Laura! I recently completed my Professional Masters in Education at Dublin City University. Currently, I am a Biology and Science teacher. I completed my Bachelors and First Masters degrees in Trinity College Dublin, specialising in Zoology and Informal Science Education respectively.
I thought it would be a worthwhile and interesting way to develop both practical skills and knowledge away from my own area of expertise. Both of these I will be able to use in the classroom and in life.
I worked with the project consent team on small projects, mostly involved with collating information about An Bord Pleanala timeframes for approving developments. This involved researching files in An Bord Pleanala’s offices, and collating the data into spreadsheets and reports. I learned a lot about the energy sector and have a better understanding of the challenges and benefits of renewable energy. I’ll be able to use this information in the classroom when teaching about energy, electricity and sustainability.
