Greater Works Christian School
My name is Miss Miller and I am the new fourth grade teacher at Greater Works Christian School. I am a recent graduate of Waynesburg University with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Waynesburg was a great school that helped to shape me into a teacher and grow in my walk with the Lord. I completed my student teaching at Waynesburg Central with first grade and at Leechburg Area School District with fifth through twelfth grade. I thoroughly enjoyed working with all different grade levels and learning many new teaching techniques during my student teaching experiences. I graduated from Waynesburg in December of 2009; then continued my career at my alma mater, Apollo-Ridge, as a substitute teacher until the end of the recent school year.
I was saved at the age of 14 after attending a youth group called Second Chance. I attended Crossroads Vineyard Church throughout high school and in college started attending Pittsburgh East Community Church and was very active in both churches. I currently still attend Pittsburgh East and work part-time in the church's daycare. At Monroeville Assembly of God, I am active with the young adults group called Redzone. I have a wonderful family that raised me in a Christian environment. Some of my hobbies include attending bible studies or anything that can further my relationship with Christ and my brothers and sisters in Christ. I love to read, play board games, go to the movies, and spend time with my family and friends. The outdoors are a favorite pastime of mine; I love to bike and hike.
This fourth grade year will challenge students academically and spiritually. The curriculum includes: math, history, language arts, science, cursive writing, bible, and health. Throughout the school year students will complete current events, monthly book reports, projects, tests, experiments, and biography writing. Different ways students will learn are through writing, worksheets, hands-on activities, technology, games, and manipulatives. This year will be an important year for students to start learning organizational skills, study skills, and how to take notes. Some events that will take place during the school year include Christmas and spring concerts, Christmas craft sale, various field trips, Apple Week, Hundredth Day Celebration, and end of the year activities.
I hope to be a blessing to your children as I already know they will be to me.
