| ||ABOUT MRS. MILLER|| |
Hi! My name is Mrs. Miller and I teach Kindergarten at Crestview Elementary School. I've been teaching Kindergarten for 18 years at Crestview, and I've also taught at Towslee and Huntington. Before that, I taught at Harmony PreSchool and before that, I was a social worker and administrator at 2 residential centers for children and adults with developmental handicaps. I have a BA in Sociology with a specialization in social work from Miami University and a MAEd in Reading from Baldwin Wallace College. Teaching is my favorite thing to do, and Kindergartners are my favorite age! I live in Brunswick and go to Brunswick Reformed Church. I have two grown daughters and 2 cats who let me live with them. In case you can't tell, I'm the ladybug teacher at Crestview!
These are my two favorite people in the whole world, my daughters. Danielle is on the left and she works as an editor at a television and film production company. Jen is on the right and is a second grade teacher at Kidder. I'm SO proud of both of them!
These are my newest furry friends. The little one is Gooby and his mom is Miss Higgens, but I always just call her Momma. A friend fostered them and another little one for Lakewood Animal Shelter and I adopted these two. Danielle adopted the brother, named Toof. Gooby is very bad and full of energy. I tell lots of Gooby stories in my room, so you will get to know him very well!
This is Woodstock. She is a Sparrow that I rescued 8 years ago when she was only about 3 days old. Her brothers and sisters pushed her out of her nest and hurt her leg. After MANY long days of feeding every 15 minutes, she was healthy and able to eat on her own. Still, I couldn't let her go because she didn't know she's a sparrow! She used to like to sit on your head and hide in your collar (can you see her?) but when she became a teenager (that's called a fledgling) she started biting. The last picture is her taking a bath.
These pictures are of Barry. He's another bird that I rescued about 11 years ago and is a Cedar Waxwing. He ate about every 30 minutes and I had to mash up worms to feed him. BLECH!!! With the help of a bird sanctuary, I was able to release him and he's living happily with his bird buddies in the forests around Litchfield! He sure was a crabby looking bird but he grew up to be beautiful!
Can you tell that I like animals? I won't even kill bugs!
