Miller, Caroline, Library Media Specialist

Caroline Miller graduated from Furman University in Greenville, SC in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.  In 2009, she received her National Board Certification in Literacy and in 2011, she received an endorsement for Gifted and Talented education through the College of Charleston. Ms. Miller was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina.

Mrs. Miller has 19 years of experience teaching grades 1 - 5 in public and private schools. During her 12 years of teaching in Charleston, South Carolina she has participated in various gifted and talented educational conferences with renowned speakers such as Michael Clay Thompson and Dr. Shelagh A. Gallagher. She has been trained in STEAM education through Clemson University and was instrumental in facilitating a STEAM project in her school about ocean pollution. She has been a facilitator for professional development giving presentations such as using literacy stations in the elementary classroom.  Also, Mrs. Miller was selected for a team of educators in her school to develop a more effective process for weekly, professional collaboration for the faculty of her school. This resulted in times for each grade level team to be more strategic, student-centered, and innovative with instructional strategies.

This will be Mrs. Miller’s 3rd year at ACS Athens and 2nd year as the teacher librarian and media specialist for the elementary school where she has transformed the ES library into a welcoming space and learning hub for our students, faculty, and parents. She looks forward to a 2nd year to continue developing the library curriculum and events where excitement for reading and literacy abound.
