Brian Cadigan, Primary School Teacher
Brian Cadigan works as a National School Teacher at Scoil San Treasa in Dublin. He completed a Bachelor of Education from St. Patrick's College, Drumcondra. He is a committed teacher and is involved in sports training alongside his classroom work. His school camogie and hurling teams reached four Cumann na mBunscoil finals and won two of them.
I needed to chose a second language besides Gaeilge in order to get into St. Patrick's College in Drumcondra. I decided to study French.
Primary School: Castlecomer Convent & Castlecomer Boys National School, Co. Kilkenny.
Secondary School: Castlecomer Community School, Co. Kilkenny - Completed Junior and Leaving Certificate Examinations.
College: St.Patrick's College, Drumcondra - completed Bachelor of Education Degree.
Currently studying in U.C.D. on a Masters in Education Programme.
A Classroom Management course I attended in St.Patrick's College, Drumcondra. When I reflect back now one of the modules on this course was called 'learning to become a teacher'. It was very influential and significant to my work today.
I have received training on the use of the interactive whiteboard as a tool for teaching.
Inservice days on new (1999) primary school curriculum.
I have participated in many courses on Gaelic Games run by the local G.A.A. Club 'Kilmacud Crokes'.
Currently I am studying in U.C.D. on a Masters in Education programme.
