What is your role at Kolbe?
Curriculum Leader: Years 7 and 8

What does a typical day at Kolbe look like for you?
One of the things that I love about teaching is that there is no such thing as a typical day, everyday is different. However, a fairly normal day would involve me meeting with teachers and leaders at the college. I meet with students to discuss issues that they may be facing with their learning as well as contact parents to discuss these matters.

What do you love most about working at Kolbe Catholic College?
I really love the sense of community that is fostered here at Kolbe. As a new staff member, I have been embraced and it feels like I've already been here for years.
