I teach High-School chemistry. I present demonstration chemistry lectures two or three times a year to school children. I give demonstration lectures to trainee science teachers on the use of teacher demonstrations in chemistry teaching and on classroom methodology in relation to pupil practical work.

I would like the International year of chemistry 2011 to benefit teachers of the Junior Certificate Science chemistry component. Particularly those for whom chemistry is not their area of expertise.
