Professional Background: Mrs. Miller has over 25 years teaching experience with 3s, 4s, and Kindergarten. Prior to coming to St. Stephen’s Academy, from 2001-2017 she taught morning and afternoon 4s classes and was the music teacher for all 4 year old classes at Beaverton Christian Church Preschool and Kindergarten. During the time she raised her children, Mrs. Miller took time away from teaching and served in her church as the Children’s Choir Coordinator, supervising nine choir, directors, and staff. She was also the Concert Series Coordinator for the evangelistic outreach ministry. After several years in business management, God led her back to her passion for teaching Pre-Kindergarten children.
Philosophy of Education: Mrs. Miller believes preschool is a very important part of a child’s education where foundation stones for their future learning and their relationship with Christ can continue to be securely set. She hopes to instill in young children a love for God and to know that God loves them, to appreciate God’s creation, and that their life is a valuable part of His creation. She also hopes to develop within them a love for learning, to encourage academic development as well as social and emotional skills and small motor abilities. Mrs. Miller loves the freedom at a Christian school to bring Christ into all areas of teaching. She is excited to be part of the St. Stephen’s family.
