Mr. Miller


Hello and welcome to Second Grade!  I am Mr. Miller and I look forward to getting to know you!  I am an avid sports fan, reader, movie lover, and player of games.

Teaching Experiences

After graduating from UC Irvine in 2013, I was hired as an Instructional Assistant at Eastshore Elementary here in IUSD.  I worked there for two years in all grade levels as I completed my teaching credential through National University.  Upon completing my credential, I was hired at Canyon View Elementary School as a Second Grade teacher in the fall of 2015.  I come to Beacon Park at the beginning of my second year as a teacher excited to bring fresh ideas and energy into the classroom.

I discovered my love of teaching through my first job as a Swim Coach in Fountain Valley when I was 15.  I spent 10 years working with swimmers ages 4-18 before stepping into the classroom.


My family is not a big one, but we are a close one!  My mother and father are both Southern California natives and currently live here in Orange County.  I have one older brother and we were raised in Fountain Valley our whole lives.  My brother currently lives in Washington, D.C.  I do not currently own any pets, though my family has always had dogs and we are all dog lovers.


Where do I begin?  I love to play and watch all kinds of sports and games (recently focusing on golf and frisbee golf, trying to learn!).  I love watching all kinds of movies (especially superheroes) and reading all kinds of books.  I love being outdoors and spending time with my friends and family.  I love taking pictures of beautiful landscapes when I travel.  Technology is a big area of interest for me.  I find the latest gadgets and tech fascinating and fun to play and learn with.  In college, I was a part of both the UC Irvine Swimming and Rowing teams.
