Erin Rowland

Diploma of Children’s Services (2004)

Primary School Teacher

Erin Rowland said she learned the skill of learning at Box Hill Institute. It’s not as confusing as it sounds. As Grade 3 and 4 teacher at Springview Primary School in Nunawading, Erin brings a deep understanding of learning techniques and a passion for quality child care that all began in her time studying for a Diploma of Children’s Services at Box Hill Institute.

Not only did this course give Erin the career direction she had been looking for, but it also opened her mind to study pathways. She moved into a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education at Monash University and the qualification she needed for her subsequent career. Although Monash University was the step she needed to take, Erin missed the small class sizes and personal attention of the teaching at Box Hill Institute. It was a lesson about effective learning that she uses every day.
