Teacher Feature

The LIHS Student News Team will feature a member of staff each issue. We are seeking to inform our community about the amazing teachers and staff members at our school.

For any suggestions, please email us at LIHSnewsteam@gmail.com
We select teachers based on current school events.
All Featured Teachers will be asked the same five questions.
  1. What is your role or teaching subject at Lake Illawarra High School?

  3. How long have you been teaching and have you taught at places other than LIHS?

  4. What are some of your hobbies or interests?

  5. What do you like most about your job?
