This is Ms. Miller's fourth year teaching at Governor's Ranch, and she is thrilled and honored to be a member of such an amazing school. She has taught a variety of grades including sixth grade in a middle school. After teaching Kindergarten four years ago, she discovered that her heart is in the primary grades. Helping to nurture and instill a love of learning in the youngest learners has definitely become one of her passions.

She attended the University of Colorado, Boulder and earned a BA in Psychology, and later obtained her teaching certificate from the University of Denver. Currently, she is working on getting her Master's degree in Reading. She has two daughters, Addi (14) and Tilly (11). Ms. Miller has committed herself to being a lifelong learner in education and has a heart for the kids she teaches. When not in the classroom, Ms. Miller enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. She is excited for a new year and a new adventure!
