Monique Atwell
Head of Teaching and Learning, Caboolture Campus

I commenced at Grace Lutheran College, Rothwell campus in 2010, employed as a Business and Legal Studies teacher. In term 2 of the same year, I moved to the Caboolture campus and have been located here ever since. In 2012, I took on the role as Career Guidance Officer, as well as some aspects of teaching and learning. In 2019, I was appointed as the Head of Teaching and Learning for the Caboolture campus.

The primary purpose of my role is to work with others to build an effective learning community within the College as a whole, providing an optimal environment for student and staff development. I now oversee all aspects of curriculum delivery for this campus including the implementation of the new QCE system. I ensure that we are compliant with educational authorities such as QCAA, LEQ and ISQ and work closely with students and staff on managing successful educational pathways and outcomes particularly in the Senior School.

My initial career was in Human Resource Management (HRM) at the University of Queensland, I thoroughly enjoyed this career, but felt a calling to work with teenagers and thus deciding on a career change in my early 30s to teaching.

I have a Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management), Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) and a Master’s in Education (Leadership & Management). I also have a Certificate IV in Career Development, which I obtained prior to commencing my Career Guidance Officer role.

My hobbies include netball, watching my daughter engage in all aspects of life, going to the gym and spending quality time with family and friends. I feel privilege to be working with the Grace community in my new role and working together to uphold the College’s mission statement.
