My name is Rachael, and I am from Westmeath. I am currently in my third year of Chemistry and Biology teaching in the University of Limerick. I would like to use my STEM knowledge and apply it to a practical setting other than teaching to achieve a new skill set. I want to gain hands-on experiences and develop new knowledge from industry which would allow me to support and guide future learners in the direction of STEM careers.
I’m applying to the STEM teacher internship program because I believe it would be a fantastic chance to enhance my STEM knowledge and abilities through a unique exposure to real-world science in industry. To advance my teaching profession and ensure I am as qualified as possible for my students, I would love the opportunity to work in an industry setting where I get to see real careers in STEM and gain experience within this exciting industry.
I believe that I can bring this knowledge into the classroom to give future learners hands-on and practical knowledge of STEM careers and bring industry connections to the school to enhance the whole school community and their involvement with STEM.
