A message from the principal........

Welcome to Miller Elementary School!  I hope you find our website helpful and informative.  If you would like additional information not posted here, please contact the school office so we may better serve you. 

I am honored to serve as the principal of Miller Elementary.  I have a long history within Lafayette School Corporation. Over the past 25 years, I have been a classroom teacher, GLASS resource room teacher, Title 1 intervention teacher, librarian, assistant principal, and professional development coordinator.  Miller has an outstanding staff who is completely dedicated to helping every child learn.  I am committed to making sure your child is safe and actively engaged in learning.

When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family.  My husband and I have been married for 29 years and have spent 27 of those years raising our four children.  Being a parent is a very difficult job.  I often called on my children’s teachers, family members and friends to assist.  I hope you will allow me to help and partner with you as you raise your children.


In order to keep informed, please take time to check the website and read school newsletters and notes.  Anytime you have questions or concerns please take time to talk with your child’s teacher or me.  We want to help your child have a successful year.

Email is also a popular way of keeping informed. If you have difficulty finding an employee’s email address, you may use the teacher's first initial and last (ie: and, in most cases, that will get your email to the intended recipient. You should be able to find a teacher's email under the staff directory section of our website. 

I look forward to traveling through this school year’s adventure with you.
