Dr. Miller is in her 39th year of teaching at Presentation College. In that time, she has taught a wide variety of courses in the sciences and humanities; she is currently teaching communication and mathematics. She is also very involved in curriculum design and faculty governance. As Presentation College’s Faculty Athletics Representative and the Chair of the North Star Athletics Association Faculty Athletics Representatives’ Council, Dr. Miller tracks student-athlete academic success, works with both student-athletes and coaches, certifies student-athlete eligibility to participate in intercollegiate sports programs, and acts as a link between athletic programs and the College’s faculty.
Dr. Miller chairs the Faculty Assembly Promotion and Tenure Committee and the Arts and Sciences Core Curriculum Committee, as well as serving as Faculty Assembly Vice-President, Representative to the Presentation College Board of Trustees, and as a member of the College’s Admissions Review Committee.
In her time away from the college, Dr. Miller enjoys the company of her husband of 40 years, 3 adult offspring (they and their spouses, all PC alumni), and 3 pretty-much perfect grandchildren. She also acts as Challenge A Affiliate Challenge Master for South Dakota Destination Imagination; judges the annual Northeast South Dakota Science Fair; does organizational communication consulting; presents many workshops on public speaking, stage presentation, organizational effectiveness, and inter-gender communication. Her leisure-time activities include family events, travel, gardening, cooking, outdoor activities (warm weather only, please) and reading. She particularly enjoys hosting large family gatherings on major holidays and giving away food, especially the surplus from her garden.
