My name is Letisha Miller, and I am honored to be a fourth grade teacher here at Lindsay Elementary!
Please let me tell you a little bit about myself. I spent my childhood in Cashion, Oklahoma. I attended the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am currently taking courses at UCO in the Elementary Education master's program.
I live here in Lindsay with my husband Josh, our sons Bradley and Andrew, and our dog Bear. I enjoy helping my husband with his work on our farm just outside of Lindsay, where we grow alfalfa hay, soybeans, and wheat, and also raise cow and calf pairs. Some of my favorite things to do are reading books (especially reading with my boys!), going to the movies, spending time with my extended family, and going to my family's lodge in Ontario, Canada!
This is my ninth year here at Lindsay Elementary, and I am so excited to be here! I believe that my job as a teacher involves so much more than relaying facts to my students, and testing them to ensure their understanding of those skills. My classroom must be a place where each person is valued as part of our community of learners, and where it is okay to make mistakes (as long as we learn from them!). I believe that all students can and will learn, and it is my job to provide each student with challenging and relevant-to-life learning experiences. Each student that enters my room will be provided with opportunities to build their self esteem, and to become creative problem solvers and lifelong learners. I believe that it is my responsibility as a teacher to provide students with many opportunities to succeed, both now and in their future ever-changing society.
I am looking forward to the many wonderful experiences and opportunities my class will have to learn and grow together during this school year.
