Steve has worked as an English teacher and in school management for 15 years. Dogs Connect arrived at his school, Bendigo South East College in 2019. Steve instantly put his hand up to become involved in the program.
His involvement with Dogs Connect led him to start working for Dogs Connect as a facilitator in schools and workplaces. It has even inspired further interest in mental health and psychology, and he has recently completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology through Monash.
Steve is excited by the potential of training companion dogs to enhance life learning in schools. He combines his teaching experience with his passion for student wellbeing to support the implementation of the Dogs Connect Program.
