Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Patty Miller
I am very pleased and proud to be working at Obama Elementary School as the Schoolwide Enrichment Model coordinator. I received my bachelor degree in Elementary Education from the University of St. Catherine and my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. I began my career in 1976, teaching 4th grade in the private schools. I have been working in some facet of education every since. I joined SPPS in the early 90s and have worked in the classroom teaching kindergarten through 6th grade. I have also worked as an Administrative Intern at Webster (now Obama), Curriculum Coordinator at Prosperity Heights, Math Coach at Maxfield Elementary , District Math Intervention Specialist and School Improvement Specialist. My career experiences have brought me to this point and I am very excited to take on the challenges that I will face as Schoolwide Enrichment Model coordinato
On a personal level, I was born and raised in St. Paul. I have been married for 40 years to my high school sweetheart. We raised 4 sons, each one graduating from college and now in successful careers. All are married and we have 7 grandchildren. I am very fortunate to have all my children and grandchild living within 10 miles of my home, which means I see all of them all the time. I love it!
In conclusion, I look forward to working together to put Obama scholars’ success at the center of our efforts.
