I’m Marium, a final year student at Dublin City University, I am currently completing my Bachelor of Education. Having worked for Apple during my second year, I have since picked up a passion for working in the technology field. I have also just submitted my thesis on how to facilitate the transfer of skills during language learning. Undoubtedly, I thoroughly enjoy learning skills that I can use in a myriad of ways and incorporate new methods of teaching into my classroom.
I am a keen learner especially for skills I can apply in other contexts. As a teacher, I think the most important skill I can enhance is my adaptability. Whether it’s adapting resources to cater for different needs or adapting skills from other fields, being an adaptable teacher is crucial. I feel the STEM Teacher Internship programme will aid me in building that skill among many others.
Alongside this, I have a real interest in technology and teaching kids the ‘why’ instead of just telling them ‘how’. The STEM field is unequivocally centred around the word ‘why’. Moreover, STEM is a field in which many of the children in my class might end up with a career in, thus, it is crucial for me to know how the field might look to give them an accurate view of the real world.
