Meet the new teachers in Proserpine
NEW teachers Adam Philipson and Lisa Cameron share fond memories of their senior years at Proserpine State High School and were delighted to walk through the gates as teachers this year.
They are two of 10 new teachers to be welcomed in Proserpine this year.
Adam attended Proserpine State School from 1984-1990, and went on to graduate from Proserpine State High School in 1995.
He has joined the school as a Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) and business teacher.
“It’s a bit of a time warp. Some of the teachers that taught me in the early 90’s are still here and they have been very supportive,” he said.
Fellow staff member Lisa Cameron graduated from Proserpine State High School in 1998, and has returned as a maths and science teacher.
Also new to the school are Jane Moran, Kahlia Goodwin, Julie Daniel and Jodi Gibson, who is the new science head of department.
Meanwhile, year 3-4 teacher Sophie Smith is one of the two new faces to join St Catherine’s Catholic College.
She has lived in the Whitsundays for the past seven years, completing her Bachelor of Education by correspondence with the University of Southern Queensland.
Proserpine State School welcomed three new educators to their team including acting principal Alison Bradford.
Mrs Bradford has worked as a deputy principal in north Queensland schools for the past 12 years, and moved to the Whitsundays in September to take on her new position.
NEW EDUCATORS: Acting principal Alison Bradford, with year 4 teacher Rachelle Trevisiol and year 2 teacher Haylee Whybird have joined the team at Proserpine State High School this year.
FRESH FACES: Teachers Jane Moran, Kahlia Goodwin, Adam Philipson, Lisa Cameron and Julie Daniel have joined the dedicated team of educators at Proserpine State High School.
