Senior School - Mathematics Teacher

Mr Michael Germech

I joined the team at Scots All Saints early last year and am currently a Mathematics and iSTEM teacher on the Scots Campus. After completing Honours Degree in Physics at the University of Melbourne I began a career in the commercial world where I held various roles including as a Project Manager for road construction, Business Management in housing construction and a little over a decade working with an Explosives company in the mining industry. Since becoming a teacher in 2006 I have taught a range of subjects in the Science, Computing, Technology and Mathematics faculties – and hence am a proud card-carrying member of the Nerd Club.

I grew up in outer Melbourne and hence follow the great Australian football code as a Hawthorn supporter. I have a great love for sport and have been fortunate to play both Netball and Basketball at a range of representative levels. These days, you will find me more often standing on the side of the court as a coach, although I do manage to run up and down in the middle when time permits. In my spare time at home I can be often found in a renovation project while my ideal holidays involve skiing in the winter and at a surf beach over the summer break.

My choice to enter the Teaching profession was largely from the encouragement of my Mum who was a primary teacher for 30 years. I am pleased I finally followed her advice (when aren’t mothers right?) and I hope my enjoyment of teaching is obvious to all who enter my classroom. Making mistakes is an essential part of the learning process and it is important that young people can do so in a safe environment so they can explore their abilities without fear of being seen as a failure.

In the past year and a half, I have found Scots All Saints College to be strongly aligned with my personal values and an organization where students and staff are supported to achieve their very best. I look forward to many more years as a part of this wonderful organisation.
