Meet the Teachers – Marnie Calwell, Teacher of Geography

Where were you before Eltham College?

Before Eltham I lived in Bristol working at a Catholic College as a Geography teacher.  So this has not only been a brand new school for me but a new city too!

What have you enjoyed so far about starting here?

I have been very grateful for how welcoming everyone has been here at Eltham. I have also loved the geographical passion and enthusiasm I have already seen so clearly in the students.

What are you most excited about undertaking with students?

I am really excited to be able to go on fieldtrips again with students. It is something I have definitely missed over the past few years and I can’t wait to get back out there!

Something students and staff may not know about you?

I am a rhythmic gymnast! I used to train a huge amount as a child and even became part of the British squad! I have loved helping out with some gymnastics lessons and the gymnastics club here at Eltham showing them a different type of gymnastics!
