5 Questions with Erika Mills

Erika's love of everything creative took her from singing competitively in a gold medal-winning barbershop choir, to teaching art, music and languages across the UK. Her sense of adventure brought her to BSG, and now Erika looks forward to entering her third year with the school.

1. What were your first impressions of BSG?

As I stepped into the Nanhu campus, I was in awe. The campus was such a unique place with fantastic facilities for the children. I had a good impression of my new work colleagues as they were so friendly and helpful. The thing that intrigued me the most was the unusual rollercoaster near the secondary building!

2. What is it like to be a teacher at BSG?

It is a pleasure to go into work every day alongside committed staff and to teach children who are motivated and eager to learn. There is a key focus on high-quality teaching and learning to ensure the best outcomes for our pupils.

3. How does our ‘be ambitious’ philosophy help our students and staff?

As staff, we have ambition at the forefront of our minds to ensure the highest achievements for our pupils, both personally and academically, and for our own continual professional development as well. We provide a challenging, open-ended and child-centred curriculum which encourages the children to be independent in their thinking and learning.

BSG pupils are nurtured with self-confidence to encourage them to ‘be ambitious’ in reaching their full potential. My daughter is a prime example, as this once shy and quiet girl gained a starring role in our school production!

4. Do you have a particular highlight or favourite memory from your time here?

I really enjoyed singing at our annual International Day with the school band. I like to show the children that teachers can be brave to sing on a stage as well (even if it can be nerve-wracking!)

5. What do you do with your spare time in Guangzhou?

Guangzhou is a great place to explore. My husband, daughter and I often hire bikes to cycle around the city. It is lovely walking around near Tianhe sports stadium in the evening. There’s always lots going on with dancing groups and performers.
