My name is Melissa Miller and I received my undergraduate college degree in History from Simpson College in Indianola. I worked as the Children’s Librarian at Storm Lake for 5 years before returning to Simpson College and obtaining my Elementary Education certification. I student taught at Garton Elementary in 3rd grade. After teaching in southern Iowa for two years I am excited to be back in Des Moines. I will also be starting my master’s degree at Drake this fall. I am excited to be teaching Special Ed at Samuelson!
I have been an associate at Samuelson since 2017 after spending many years working in the early childhood field. Before joining the Samuelson staff I spent a lot of time volunteering here as our children attended Samuelson and will have all graduated from Hoover High School. I am looking forward to another great year at Samuelson!
