Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tina Roxanne Miller
I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee but have lived all around the US and the world. I even spent four years sailing the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean as well as another two years working as a Cruise Director for Princess Cruises! In 2011, I moved to Leeds to marry my husband, David. I love animals (they are my children) and organic gardening, especially the growing and cultivation of culinary and medicinal herbs.
I began teaching middle school visual arts in San Francisco in the '90s. Then I took a break to sail the seas and travel the continents, meeting all sorts of wonderful people as I went, even acquiring a second family in Italy where I lived for more than a year. I still have a list of many places to explore and hope to eventually experience them all. I believe every day is a day to learn something new in this amazing world we call home.
Wherever life takes me, I will always be a teacher. The joy of sharing knowledge, exchanging ideas, and creating something great together is why I teach. I hope all the students whose lives I have touched will always remember how much I care about them, their journeys, and their successes in life.
