Brooklyn, New York is where Ms. Miller developed her passion for sports, playing volleyball, basketball, softball and running track. She was named Best Athlete all four years of high school. Choosing to stay close to home, she attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education. She taught Physical Education at several schools, both public and private, in Brooklyn, New York until making the decision to move to California in 1999.
She developed the volleyball program at William C. Overfelt High School where we won the girl's championship for the 2004/05 season, and also won Coach of the Year that same year for the Santa Teresa Division. Moving on, Ms. Miller coached at Ann Sobrato High School where she developed the volleyball program for both boys and girls. "We won two girls championships in my two years of coaching (2007/2008) going 14-0 in the league our first year and 13-1 our second year," she says quite proudly.
As the Physical Education teacher, her program provides students with the foundation and skills necessary to live a healthy and active lifestyle that will carry on into their adult lives.
"I chose BASIS Independent Silicon Valley because of the new experiences and challenges that a new school provides," says Ms. Miller. "I enjoy creating a new program where I can foster in students a passion for exercise and sports that is both rewarding and fun. I welcome the opportunity to introduce team sports to the students."
In her free time, Ms. Miller enjoys gardening, shopping, photography, and watching classic movies. She has also coached club volleyball in past years. She enjoys chaperoning student trips to different places, stating, "I have taken students to Egypt, Florida, New York, Washington DC, and Yosemite National Park."
