Teal Miller started off teaching Economics in her early years at SHS. Now, she is solely teaching Effective Leadership.

Many students characterize her as one of the most energetic and heartwarming teachers at Summerville. She doesn’t just sit at her desk and read from a powerpoint on the screen: she gets involved with students and helps them better understand what they are doing.

“Being a teacher is exactly what I thought it would be, really hard. It makes me really tired but it’s the best job I could do” shared Miller.

Miller loves organizing the pep rallies and events the school has through Leadership.

Although she misses teaching Economics, Miller loves being able to have all her classes for Leadership students so they are able to do more for the school.

“It is really rewarding” said Mrs. Miller.

Mrs. Miller creates a relationship with her students that is greater than any other. She becomes like a second mom to them. Mentoring and just helping students with whatever they need is one way she impacts students’ lives.

“She taught me how to look at peoples lives differently and how to fully accept other people no matter what” said former student, Joey Harris.

Impacting the lives of others is what her goal was when she first decided to become a teacher.

“I really love seeing my former students out in the community and talking to them and them telling me that my class actually meant something to them” said Mrs Miller.

Even though Miller juggles so many responsibilities with Leadership, she still manages to create a fun and entertaining environment for students at SHS. Many former students come into her class all the time just to see her and tell her how much she impacted their lives, as well as to reminisce about all the fun events at the school put on by Mrs. Miller.
