My name is Holly Miller:) I am very happy to serve as Valley's Reading Intervention teacher and Second Grade Language Arts Teacher too! I have been teaching in Frederick County for 30 years and enjoy watching young learners become readers and authors. I have taught as a classroom teacher in Pre- Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First Grade, as well as served as an Intervention Teacher for 15 year of my career. In the summer of 2018, I became a certified English to Speakers of Other Languages teacher as well. I attend Valley as a student myself! I have enjoyed being a student, completing my student teaching and now being a teacher at Valley. I have also been a teacher at Waverly Elementary and Orchard Grove Elementary Schools in Frederick County. This is my 19th year teaching at Valley:)
I am excited to be part of the Second Grade team for the 2020-2021 school year! I will be sharing this position with Mrs. McCullough! I will be wearing two hats this year: I will be doing Reading Intervention to targeted groups and teaching the Language Arts block to the Second Graders assigned to our classroom. Distance learning is very different from any teaching we have ever experience before. We are ALL learning every single day. As a Mom of an FCPS student, I understand the anxieties and huge changes and responsibilies that go along with the mode of learning. These are the pledges I make to you:
1. I will treat you and your child the same way I wish my child and myself to be treated as an FCPS student and parent.
2. I will put in the time to learn this new way of teaching. I will not alway get it right, but I will fix what needs to be fixed. I ask for your patience in those times.
3. I will value my relationship with your child and do my best to make him/her feel comfortable with this new mode of learning. Flexibilty will be given and appreciate in return.
4. I encourage open communication. I want to know what is working and what need to work better!
I am excited to embark on this new journey. I am passionate about teaching and my students. I want to be the best educator I can be for your child and watch him or her blossom. The resource above was created for all of Valley Elementary School. Please check out this resource and get to know me a bit better. I will be adding to it as this year unfolds. Thank you so much for visiting my site. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you this year!
