Meet Miss Wine, a Drama teacher here at Mill Hill.
We spoke to her to find out a bit more about her and her love of Drama.
How long have you worked at Mill Hill?
‘Not very long, I only started in January 2020. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year. It definitely doesn’t feel like that as we went into lockdown only two months after I joined – I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by!
I still think of myself as new as I am still learning my way around the school and meeting new staff members all the time. Black History Month in October, which I helped to organise, changed everything – I met so many more people it was great!’
What is your favourite thing about teaching Drama?
‘I love that you get an entirely different perspective of all the pupils in Drama lessons, and you get to watch their development expressively and creatively.
Drama lessons are a chance for pupils to channel their expressive and creative energies, and put their development journeys into practice. ‘
What is your favourite thing about Mill Hill?
‘I love the community feel here. The staff are all so friendly and absolutely everyone supports each other. The pupils are also so polite, eager to learn and responsive, they have so much respect for each of the separate subjects.
Mill Hill is a truly unique place. It feels very relaxed and positive, which is what makes it so unique. There is an understanding and mutual respect amongst absolutely everyone.’
Can you describe Mill Hill in three words?
Highly valued, positive and brimming with opportunities.
What are you most looking forward to about the year ahead at Mill Hill?
I am looking forward to being able to put on some larger-scale productions and performances (Coronavirus-permitting), and hopefully increasing the visibility of the growth of drama within the school. ‘
Can you tell us something we might not know about you?
‘I used to be a professional dancer! I danced everything from contemporary and commercial, to afro-fusion and jazz!’
