School for Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership - Our Aims. Our Mission.
Caroline Michie

Caroline MichieTo say I am happy to be working at the School for Student Leadership is an understatement. I enjoy teaching young people and supporting them on the roller coaster ride of life. The Alpine School offers me the chance to do this and more. I believe the experience for students is phenomenal and I am lucky to be a part of it.

After completing a BA in Communications, I unexpectedly discovered the fulfilment of working with young people. For a number of years, I worked in a long-term residential program in Canberra for youth at risk, during which time I also studied Psychology and worked as a Summer Camp Counsellor in Arkansas, USA. I then completed a Grad Dip in Education, as I continued to work with adolescents at a boarding house and a local youth centre.

I commenced my teaching career in Myrtleford, where my interest in interdisciplinary learning grew. Then before long, my two beautiful children came into my life, and I turned to working with young children from my home in Bright, as a Family Day Care educator.

Now, as my children commence their journey through school, I’m excited to return to working with adolescents. I also feel privileged to work with an inspirational staff team, and to teach an innovative education program in an awesome remote setting.

When I’m not working with young people, I’m usually busy being a big kid, playing sports or some kind of outdoor activity. I especially enjoy netball, basketball, rock climbing, mountain biking and snowboarding. I also like drafting, films, taking photos, journal writing, singing, completing Sudokus and especially spending time with my family and friends.
