About the teacher
My name is Susan Miller and I teach second grade here at Eastside Elementary. I have been an educator for 40 years, teaching in a variety of roles and grade levels. Though I have spent a large portion of my career in second and first grade, I have also taught fifth grade, junior high and high school. I am also a licensed special education teacher with a focus on learning disabilities. Working with children with reading problems, I taught Reading Recovery for seven years and was a literacy coach for a year. I have taught at Liberty Christian and Frankton Schools, but most of my career, 30 years, I have been with ACS.
Personally, I have been happily married for 42 years to my high school sweetheart. We have two adult children, Jesse and Julie, who live in Indianapolis and a grandson, Wesley, who has stolen our hearts. My husband Jerry and I love to go camping and have enjoyed most of the state parks. My main passion is teaching though and I am excited about this school year.
