Meet Ms Emma Moustafa

Meet Ms Moustafa, a Teacher of Psychology and PSHE at Mill Hill International School. We spoke with Ms Moustafa to find out more about her role.

How long have you worked at Mill Hill International?

I joined Mill Hill International in 2017 as a Psychology and PSHE teacher.

What does your role involve?

I teach Psychology GCSE, which is a subject about the brain and behaviour. PSHE stands for personal, social, health education and includes relationships and mental health topics. I am also the well-being lead and deputy safeguarding lead at the school. Essentially, I work alongside the deputy head to ensure our pupils and staff feel happy and safe at school. This involves promoting well-being strategies through well-being days, self-esteem workshops and training or assemblies on mental health awareness.

What is your favourite thing about Mill Hill International?

Where do I start?!

I love that our school feels like a family, everyone from our site team to the administration team, to senior leaders are incredibly friendly and supportive. The pupils are a joy to work with, they are extremely respectful and talented. I find the small classes helpful as they allow me to give each pupil individual attention.

The technology provisions here are great, most classes have SMART boards and pupils have iPads, which make lessons more interactive while developing our digital literacy. We are also a paperless school, so it feels like we are doing our part to help the environment.

Do you have any advice for our pupils which could help them to get the most out of their time at Mill Hill International? 

We have a huge support network here for pupils, from friendly teachers to therapists. So, reach out if you ever need someone to talk to and do not be afraid to ask for help when needed.

What is your favourite book and film for our pupils and why?  

The Road Less travelled by Dr M. Scott Peck. It is a self-help book about how facing difficulties through change can enable us to reach a higher self-understanding.

Could you share an inspirational quote with us? How does it inspire you? 

“Our life is shaped by our mind, for we become what we think” Buddha. This quote motivates me to have a positive mindset and to live in daily happiness.

Can you tell us something that we might not know about you?

I am fluent in Arabic, and white Lilies are my favourite flower!
