Niamh obtained a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science, Biology, and Chemistry with concurrent teacher education from the University of Limerick. She has written several revision articles for the Farmers’ Journal newspaper as part of their weekly Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science education supplement. Niamh feels that science-based subjects enrich a student’s educational experience, as they are diverse and rewarding subject areas with real-life applications. Thus, Niamh sees her job as a dual responsibility: both to the development of each student’s scientific literacy, and the nurturing of the students as future scientists.
