Feature Teacher - Ms. Miller
Ms. Miller is our fantastic Art teacher here at Rocky River. This is Ms. Miller’s second year teaching at Rocky River and she has been a welcomed addition to our staff. The students love going to Art class. Claire St. Bernard, a fourth grader, says “She is helpful and kind and makes art fun!”.
She grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and moved to Charlotte when she was 8 years old. However, she considers Charlotte to be more of her home rather than Columbia, and she remembers the most from growing up here. Ms. Miller still lives in Charlotte, a few blocks from the city and she loves where she lives! It's so nice to be so close to everything and she loves to drive through uptown and see all the buildings.
She attended college at Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi and then finished her degree at UNC Charlotte. Her love of art stems from her grandmother. Her grandmother was a huge influence in Ms. Miller’s life and her becoming an artist. It’s hard for her to pick a favorite artist because she is drawn to many and their different styles. Today, she loves Marc Chagall because he loved to incorporate music into his art pieces. Ms. Miller loves to work with PAINT! She loves to paint and has loved it from a very young age.
Ms. Miller is proud to be a Roadrunner and loves all her students at Rocky River and sees a budding artist in each and every student. They are all wonderful artists and she is inspired every time she walks into the building. The best part of her job is that she gets to help students use their creativity to make the world a more beautiful place.
With the help of her newly formed art club, a beautiful mural is being painted in the front hall! It is a work in progress and will hopefully be finished before the winter break. The mural is all about the students at Rocky River and all they do: Art Club, Science Club, Math, Reading, Writing, Garden Club and so much more! Come take a look at it in January, it's going to be great!
