Mrs. Mary Dillon
People are ultimately what makes the Christ School experience so special.
With the 2021-22 school year approaching, we would like to use the coming days to recognize some valued members of our faculty and staff as well as introduce several new employees.
Mary Dillon has presided over Christ School's Theater Department since 2001. Audiences have enjoyed close to 40 plays directed by her during that time. She is not afraid to innovate either.
It was Mrs. Dillon's idea to introduce Winter Film as an after-school option to Greenies starting with the 2018-19 school year and Broadcast Journalism was added for 2020-21.
Mrs. Dillon teaches World Literature, Honors World Literature, Journalism, Film as Literature, and English as a Second Language (ESL). She is the faculty advisor for The Stump student news organization, which includes a print newspaper as well as streamed newscasts.
Mrs. Dillon is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas and the Bread Loaf School of English at Middlebury College. She has directed five productions for the Montford Park Players in Asheville, most recently Henry IV, Part 1 in the summer of 2019.
