New Staff at St Albans Secondary College

Dear SASC Community,

My name is Vonnie and I have just recently begun teaching Maths, Science and Year 11 Personal Development. I am so excited to be embarking on this new chapter of my life. I completed my Master of Teaching (Secondary Teaching) in 2020 at Victoria University. I have spent the majority of the first year of my teaching career working as a CRT through ANZUK and have been to numerous schools in Victoria building my experience. 

Prior to my Masters of Teaching, I graduated a Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Sciences) from Swinburne University where I also got some industry experience working at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in 2015. During my undergraduate studies I also had the pleasure of travelling to Vietnam with 15 other university students for one of my units. We spent two weeks working with university students in Tra Vinh, talking about Sustainability.

Ultimately, I chose to alter my career pathway towards teaching because I believed it would help me to find a greater sense of meaning and happiness. Since making this decision I feel more fulfilled and energised towards making a positive contribution as a teacher. Thank you so much for your warm welcome. See you around, folks! ?

 

 

Ilija Manojilovic

Hi, I am a new member of the Individual Needs team and this is my first role in the education department. I have a background working as a carer, but this new role supporting the kids at school is unique and I am excited for the challenge and learning ahead. I am very grateful for the opportunity, and only after a few weeks here at St. Albans I have felt very welcomed and have met many lovely people.

Here is a bit about me: In my spare time I enjoy playing soccer and going to the gym. I also like the outdoors, lately I have been really into fishing. 

I look forward to meeting and working with you all.
