We asked Mrs. Miller a few questions to get to know her better.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up, and why?

Mr. Campbell, for his sense of humor, and he connected with us as students.

What led you to a career in education?

No real specific situation led me to education. I remember in high school just all of a sudden wanting to go into education after talking about being a lawyer for years.  I'm so glad I chose education!

So far, it's been the chicken salads.

My sister and I are first-generation American citizens. Both my parents were born in Italy. I speak and understand Italian.
