Quick Questions with Stefanie.

Stefanie is a Year 8 Mentor and Health and Physical Education Teacher.

What do you love about your job?

I am able to work with students to achieve their goals and support them as they navigate young adulthood.

Working with supportive colleagues who go above and beyond for their students.

What made you want to study teaching?

I had been involved in cricket coaching for a number of years and really enjoyed working with young people and helping them improve their cricket skills.

I also have a passion for education and thought that I could best pursue both interests by going into HPE teaching.

What is one thing you would go back and tell your 14 year-old self?

You’re going to keep playing cricket and you will get out for a duck many more times, and that is OK! Don’t be too hard on yourself.

What is one thing you would love to do, if you could you do anything?

I would love to travel the world and teach in another country.

If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would be seated at your table?

I would invite David Attenborough.
