“Encouraging a child means that one or more of the following critical life messages are coming through, either by word or by action: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, You are listened to, You are cared for, You are very important to me.”

    Hello!  My name is Cathy Miller, and I have had the pleasure of teaching children in SCASD since 1991.  I started out in the district teaching first grade, moved to teaching intermediate grades for the bulk of my career, and then assumed the role of instructional support teacher at the former Boalsburg/Panorama Village Elementary School for several years.  I was PAWSitively excited to join the Corl Street team as the instructional support teacher in 2015.
    With higher numbers and a hybrid model in grade 4 this year, my role includes teaching grade 4 mathematics-- I have an amazing class of mathematicians!  During the rest of the school day, I support students in other grades in developing key numeracy and computation skills and concepts using the Bridges Intervention program.  I also enjoy conferencing with various third graders during guided reading.  Lastly, I serve as facilitator of our instructional support team and schoolwide positive behavior support team.
    When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family-- especially hiking, kayaking, and swimming.  Other favorite pastimes include curling up with a good book, writing, attending musical theater performances, rooting for the high school football team and marching band, cheering on all Penn State sports, and playing a family game of Scrabble, Catch Phrase, or Dominoes.  I am excited to share, explore, and learn with my students at Corl Street this school year!
