Meet Our Employee of the Month: Michelle Fisher
St Philip’s Christian College Cessnock believes in honouring and uplifting our amazing staff. We don’t want to brag, but we think that we have one of the best teams in the world. Once a month, we run a staff-nominated ‘Employee of the Month’, where staff are encouraged to nominate two employees who they believe uphold the College values, as well as go above and beyond to make St Philip’s Christian College Cessnock a better place for our community. We are excited to talk to you about one of our Employees of the Month: Michelle Fisher
Michelle has been a part of the team here for almost 7 years, having first been introduced to the College through her husband, Grahame, who is a member of our amazing Property and Maintenance Team, and her daughter who was also previously employed at St Philip’s. With insight into the ethos of the College, it wasn’t long until she applied for a position here herself… and we are so glad she did!
Michelle is one of our wonderful Teacher’s Aides, working alongside our Classroom Teachers and Learning Support Staff. Her role includes providing activities that are designed to stimulate and educate each individual student she works with and collaborating with class teachers to ensure that any and every child is well known, loved and taught.
Her favourite part of the job is interacting with students; discovering what works and what doesn’t work for each individual. She constantly seeks to identify what improvements and adjustments can be made — to fine tune delivery of the activities to suit the individual.
Michelle is not only beloved by the students of the College but also by the staff she works with. She enjoys the supportive culture of the Learning Support Staff, who each go above and beyond to make sure every staff member feels encouraged and accepted. From celebrating birthdays, team outings and spontaneous notes of encouragement, our Learning Support team carry a great spirit of camaraderie, and we know that Michelle is instrumental in contributing to this culture!
Michelle is passionate about developing students and helping them understand their value and importance. Michelle desires for each student to be the best they can be. She counts it as a privilege to be able to develop and speak into the lives of these precious students, knowing that this can change their attitude towards themselves and set them up for the whole of their life.
We are extremely thankful for everything that Michelle does for St Philip’s Christian College Cessnock and it’s an honour to announce her as Employee of the Month for March 2022.
