What is your educational background & future goals?
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Ohio University (main campus) in 1995. I earned my Master’s in Education: Classroom Teaching with a Fine Arts Concentration from the University of Rio Grande in 1998. I started my doctoral program in Comparative Arts at Ohio University (main campus) in 1998. I successfully completed all the coursework for my PhD but did not complete the dissertation. My short-term academic goals include getting published.
Did you always want to teach?
Yes. I grew up in a teaching environment. My father, Greg Miller, was a dedicated Rio professor. So, education has always been very important to my family.
What brought you to Rio Grande?
I love teaching for Rio because I believe in the students of this region. I grew up around here. This is my community. I’m an alum! Also, Rio gives teachers autonomy in their own classrooms, which has allowed me to become a better teacher.
What classes do you teach?
During the last five years, I’ve taught English, Fine Arts, and Humanities courses. I’ve been teaching adjunct for Rio for 23 years.
What’s Next?
I’m teaching a Fine Arts class this summer during the first five week session. I am considering offering two workshops at the Jackson Center this summer: YLEO Basics and Action Painting.
