Welcome to Lakes Middle School! My name is Mrs. Miller and I love being a wife and mother! I am currently teaching 7th grade Math and this will be my 6th year at this amazing school. I came to Lakes from Bryan Elementary where I taught 4th and 5th grades for six years. I was born and raised in Coeur d'Alene where I attended Bryan Elementary and Lakes Middle School as a kid. It is an honor to return the fabulous education I once received! I graduated from University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) with an Education Degree and a Masters in Leadership and Administration.
I am excited for a new adventure this year and to implement some new math resources and technology in our classrooms! As educators, we have been spending quite a bit of time preparing ourselves and students with a growth mindset! It's important students always come with to class with a GROWTH MINDSET…believing they can learn, that mistakes lead to growth, and perseverance and grit will lead to success! We are ready for the new higher standards for our students and some changes with grading practices.
Please refer to Skyward for grades and assignments. Email me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's life!
