Luke Herring has a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) from the University of Melbourne. He teaches VCE Philosophy, English, and Literature at Eltham High School, and has taught in the UAE and the UK. Much of his teaching focusses on what is is to be human and how to live the good life. Luke spent much of his formative years living on French Island, which explains his wide reading and enjoyment of solitude. He likes travel, cooking, and spending time with his wife and two daughters, and his dog, cat, and bees.
