Igniting Curiosity

Maths-science teacher Alysia Rawlings is also our Year 10 Learning Leader and SRC Coordinator. Lucky she's super organised! Alysia joined Elwood College in 2015.

What has led you to teaching at Elwood College?

I studied a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Education at Monash University. I did a major in Developmental Biology and a minor in Psychology and I love teaching Science and Maths. I really like the way Science can ignite curiosity in students and lead to interesting class discussions and that Maths is a very practical, relatable and useful subject for students. I am looking forward to being part of the Elwood College community and contributing to the school.

I have a cat and a dog who do not always get along! I enjoy playing tennis, going camping as well as being a professional cake decorator.
