6th grade Title 1 teacher
Reason for selection:
Mrs. Miller works with many of our 6th grade students and goes above and beyond to support their academic needs in the classroom. Additionally to this she treats every person at DMS with kindness and care that is unmatched.
Why do you love working at Dalton Local Schools?
The friendly staff, high academic standards and supportive community. Most of all, I enjoy working with the students and seeing them grow and realize their potential.
How did you get where you are today?
I come from a long line of teachers including my grandparents and my mother so education has always been valued in my family. I graduated with my K-8 degree in Education from Malone College and started my career at Lake Local Schools as both a Kindergarten and 1st Grade teacher for a total of 4 years. After this, I was blessed to stay home with my 3 children for many years while tutoring, homeschooling, and giving piano lessons. Eventually, I returned to the public schools as a Title 1 tutor in both Strasburg and now at Dalton Middle School for the past 4 years. The person that has influenced me the most is my mother, Joette McCaw. She was a devoted elementary school teacher for 30 years and was passionate about her job and the opportunity she had to make a difference in the lives of her students. Her example and continued support inspires me to do the same with the students I am privileged to work with each day.
What’s an interesting fact about you?
I volunteer as a Client Advocate at the Canton Pregnancy and Parenting Center where I meet with young parents who need encouragement, resources and parenting assistance.
