        Hi!  I'm Maria Miller the Gear Up Literacy Teacher, English/Language Arts Teacher and the AVID Elective Teacher for Jemez Valley Middle School.  I'm in my fifth year of teaching at Jemez Valley and I'm in my 16th year of teaching!  My husband Coach Blake Miller and I recently moved from Dallas, TX where we both worked for the highly esteemed Mesquite Independent School District. We have one 2 year old son and we are now expecting our second child (a boy!) due February 14th!  We are beyond excited to raise our sons as Warriors!  I've previously taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th and 12th grades! I'm so excited to continue to work with the fabulous middle school students at JVMS!

           I was fairly nomadic during my childhood and teenage years living in Gallup, NM, then moving to a suburb of Washington D.C., and finally settling in Southlake, TX where I graduated from the nationally recognized Southlake Carroll High School.  I then attended Texas Tech University and received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and English.  In continuing my education, I acquired my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University.  I'm a Level 3 teacher with endorsements in Reading, Science, and Language Arts. I am beyond excited to share my educational experiences with all of my students and encourage them to work hard in middle school, high school, and college!  GO WARRIORS!
