Name – Julia Duke
Title – Production Coordinator & Teaching Team Leader

Julia started teaching as a graduate at Rowville Secondary College in 2010 working at the Eastern Campus. In Julia’s earlier years at the college she taught the majority of junior science and maths to RIA classes connecting with the students through her passion for the arts!

“I have also taught numerous RSA classes and had the fantastic opportunity of being selected to go on the USA basketball Tour in 2015 which was a definite highlight of my career.”

“In 2012 I began working alongside Kacey Hocking as Production Coordinator and have helped to develop this fantastic program. Running this program and working with such amazing students and staff has been my favourite part of each year. Being surrounded by people with such a passion for the arts is incredible and this has helped to keep my passion for teaching alive.”

Julia’s favourite thing about teaching is being able to connect with people, not just students. Getting to know the individuals in my class and helping them to strive to achieve their best not only in their studies, but also their lives.

In Julia’s spare time she is involved in numerous theatre companies around Melbourne performing on stage as well as working behind the scenes. She is a “fur mumma” to her beautiful Labrador called Beans.
