Ms. Laura Miller

Hello, my name is Laura Miller and I am a second grade teacher at Polenta Elementary. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in the spring of 2015 and I am starting my fourth year of teaching in second grade! Although I had my college years at the beach I am a Garner native and grew up in the Wake County area. I have recieved county training sessions in Investigations which is a designed rigorus math inquiry based program that JCS has adopted. I have also had the great opportunity to travel to Japan in the summer of 2015 to explore the Japanese school systems and visit many classrooms of all ages.
