Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Jessica Miller and I am one of the Reading Specialists at Rockwood Area School District. This is my seventh year in education and my fourth year teaching at Rockwood. I have previously taught at Salisbury Elementary as the Prek Counts Teacher and Turkeyfoot Valley where I taught Learning Support and Gifted Education.
In 2014, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education (Prek-4) from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. In 2015, I continued my education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania to receive my Special Education (Prek-8) certification and this spring I completed my Master’s degree in Reading at Slippery Rock University.
I currently live in New Lexington with my husband, one year old son, and two teacup yorkies. When I am not at school, I like to read, shop, and spend time with my family. The highlight of my summer was my son, Sawyer, turning a year old on July 31st. I have enjoyed watching him learn and grow every day over the past year. I cannot wait to hear about your adventures and learning during the summer! My contact information can be found on my classroom page. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email with any questions or concerns throughout the school year.
