If you asked Melinda Miller about her job, she would tell you that teaching is one of the most challenging yet exciting professions there is. Melinda has been an educator for almost twenty years, including the past six years teaching third through sixth grades at Forest Glen Elementary School of Spanish Immersion. Through respect and love, high academic and behavioral expectations, and constant self-reflection, Melinda strives to build confidence, curiosity, and success in all her students so they become lifelong learners.
Melinda is also dedicated to professional development and helping to train the next generation of teachers. Teachers are leaders, she says, but they are also always learners. As such, she serves as a cooperating teacher for student teachers from IUPUI and Butler University, and takes an active role in curriculum development and leadership in her district, and she looks forward to continuing that work with the next generation of educators here in the School of Education.
