Ms. Lisa Miller
Lisa Miller has over 30 years teaching experience in high school mathematics. Originally from Alabama, she taught mathematics and computer science before retiring in 2011. In 1989 she became one of only 6 teachers in Alabama who used a dial up connection to teach supercomputing by connecting with the Cray supercomputer in the Space and Rocket center in Huntsville, Alabama. At that time the Internet was in its infancy, consisting of mostly university, government, and some business computers. In 2000 she passed her National Board Certification and became the second National Board Certified High School math teacher in Alabama (certificate not renewed in 2010). In the early 2000’s she helped pilot the AMSTI program (Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative). She also served a two-year term as President of the Alabama Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Additionally, she worked with the US Department of Education on their “Teacher to Teacher” program and spent two summers travelling the country and presenting her teaching ideas to other teachers. She is a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the International Society for Technology in Education and has been a presenter at their respective national conferences.
In 2014 she moved to Georgia to start a new career teaching mathematics and special education. During the summer of 2019 she followed her daughter’s family to Virginia and is now happily teaching geometry and advanced functions her first year at Loudoun Valley High School. GO VIKINGS!
