    Dear Miller Education Center families and Hillsboro Big Picture families,

    My staff and I are preparing for the 2021-2022 school year and we can't wait to get started. As we transition for the start of the year we will continue to provide all students with the education they need and deserve to prepare for College/Career and beyond. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your student's school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Miller Education Center currently has 11 programs, if you know of someone in our community that needs information regarding one of our programs please have them visit our website or call Miller West to see if we can help them with their educational needs.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,
