POSTION AT OWL: Art Teacher and Crew Leader
I started teaching in Saint Paul Public Schools in the fall of 2001. I have previously worked at Battle Creek Middle School, Johnson Senior High School, Parkway Montessori Middle School and Gordon Parks High School.
I am a licensed teacher in Visual Art. I have a BA from St. Olaf College in Studio Art and Education. I also have a Masters in Education from Saint Mary's University in Teaching and Learning. I received my Montessori teaching certification from CMSTEP in Secondary 1 and Secondary 2 Montessori Education. I also have a Masters in Montessori Education from University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
I am a co-coach for St. Paul Youth Mountain Bike Team and besides being out on team rides. I also really enjoy mountain biking with friends and family. I stay active with my own pottery studio making functional pottery for everyday use. Keeping up with commissioned work and having enough pottery for a sale from time to time keeps me busy in my home studio. I also cook soups and stews in the cold winter months and love making homemade pizza for friends and family.
I live with my family in St. Paul. I have two sons; both my sons attend St. Paul Public Schools and keep active with the many interests they have. My wife is a school nurse for Minneapolis Public Schools and loves to travel. So, we are often going on trips to places near and far.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks, Kent Miller
