Adam Angus

Hi! My name is Angus, I am a first year teacher and thrilled to be starting at St Albans Secondary College. I have joined the Commerce teaching team and teach a range of Business related subjects across Year 10 and Year 11. Prior to teaching, I worked as an Accountant in assurance (audit) at Ernst and Young (EY) where I became a qualified Chartered Accountant. Outside of work I love sport.

Graham Preston

Dear St Albans Secondary College community,

I’m Graham and I am the new Learning Specialist in Literacy at the College.  I am so excited and honoured to join this community of learning in 2022 and beyond.  I am passionate about literature and literacy and I look forward to working with everyone here to maximise the outcomes of our students in a range of fields.  Over a decade ago, I started my career down the road at Victoria University Secondary College (Brimbank Campus) as an English teacher, before teaching Geography at an international school in Mongolia.  For the past 9 years, I was at Balwyn High School where I taught English, Literature and Humanities in Years 8 through 12 and served as part of the leadership team for the final 3 years.  Outside of the classroom, I have 2 children who are both now at primary school.  I also love to collect and listen to records, read novels and tend to my very large garden.

Taylor Decker

Hi St Albans Secondary College Community! 
My name is Taylor and I am a brand-new teacher to your school. I am extremely excited to be joining St Albans Secondary College as a Humanities and Legal Studies Teacher for this school year and can’t wait to get involved in what the school has to offer! This is my fifth year as a teacher and I spent the last four years at a school in Werribee, so I’m very happy to be making the switch and teaching a different group of students. 

Outside of being a teacher, I also love to try new hobbies like painting, snowboarding, boxing and Yoga. I am a Basketball coach for domestic and representative teams, as well as being the team manager for the School Sport Victoria State Basketball team. I enjoy all sports and love the outdoors, so feel free to chat to me about anything and everything sport related! ? 

I am looking forward to meeting you all and working with you throughout the year.
