Holly Miller, a 6th grade STEM teacher at Riverside Intermediate School, has the following goals when it comes to teaching her students: see them, understand them, encourage them, and challenge them. Holly has 10 years of teaching experience and focuses her instruction on collaboration, knowledge construction, real-world problem solving, the use of technology, and skilled communication. The biggest testament of Holly’s teaching is the ways STEM comes to life for her students, such as when she designed a simulated trip to Mars to which her students responded like “kids in a candy store.” In addition to serving as the chemistry club coach, the robotics team coach, and an organizer of a family STEM night, Holly is a lifelong learner. Currently a second-year doctoral student at Texas Tech University, Holly wants to continue working in the classroom as well as find ways to work with preservice teachers and create STEM curricula.
