Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I write this letter. I have spent five wonderful years at Miller, but at the end of this school year I will be stepping down as Principal.
I have been struggling with my health and because of health reasons, I will be leaving.

I may be gone from Miller, but I will not be out of sight. Superintendent Dan Snowberger has asked me to join his team and move into the district office in a support role.
