Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Natalie Miller and I am thrilled to be a member of the Meridian Ranch Elementary team!
I am originally from Illinois but I moved to Colorado in 1997. I attended Adams State University and graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and later with a Master’s degree in Literacy. Currently, I am a student of the University of Northern Colorado and working towards my EdS in Educational Leadership.
I have been an educator for 19 years, with 14 years in the classroom and three as a teaching and learning coach. While in the classroom, I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I also had the opportunity to work and teach collaboratively with Illinois State University faculty to help support and prepare pre-service teachers. I love collaborating with others and actively seek out new learning opportunities! I am very excited to be the instructional coach at MRES! I look forward to working with and learning from one another as we grow as educators together and work towards doing what is best for our students!
Outside of school, I love to spend time with my husband, my family, my friends…and my cat (Oliver Bean). I love to travel-especially scenic road trips! I also enjoy being outdoors, working in the yard, and listening to music!
