Congratulations, Mr. Miller! When asked what he likes most about his students, Mr. Miller stated, "I enjoy the fact that my students show up ready to learn each day. They pay attention, and really get involved in the classroom environment. I love seeing a classroom with 10-15 hands up whenever a question is asked or I need a volunteer for something, and this is something I see on a daily basis from my students here at Marrington."
