Dr. Miller’s guiding philosophy is that “You live what you believe in!” She guides students, parents and colleagues to identify their strengths and to mobilize their belief systems to make profound changes in their lives. She encourages each parent, student and associate with whom she interacts to develop academic success as a habit of belief.
She believes that holding the view of students as powerful learners is the key to their self-transformation. Empowered students believe in their ability to succeed. They understand the degree of control they have in their educational experience. They see themselves as the most important factor in their own success. They know they are destined to achieve their dreams.
