Meet Miss Papastergiou

Mary Papastergiou - Head of Year 9

  • Completed my Bachelor of Health Science at Deakin University, specialising in Psychology and Disability studies.
  • Completed my Masters of Teaching at Deakin University.
  • I love travelling and exploring new places! I have been very fortunate to travel to various parts of Australia, Europe and Asia, and hope to continue my adventures.
  • My childhood dream came true when I attended the 2016 AFL Grand Final and seeing the Western Bulldogs win a premiership.
  • One of my fondest memories is attending the FIFA World Cup in Russia in 2018.
  • I enjoy going on hikes and playing sports such as soccer, basketball and tennis.

My teaching philosophy is to build positive relationships with students and support them to follow their passions. I love being a teacher as everyday is very different and I am able to get to know so many different young people and learn about them as learners and also as people. My priority as a teacher here at Bentleigh Secondary College is ensuring students feel safe and supported.
