Many students have given up on learning math or categorized it as unnecessary for their lives. I hope that my passion for the subject will help convince them otherwise.
Madison Miller 2011 Fellow
2011 Fellow Long Reach High School Columbia, Maryland
Madison Miller first realized that she wanted to become a teacher when she started coaching her jump rope team. “I began coaching because I loved to jump rope, but soon I realized how much I loved the act of teaching.” While it was always satisfying to see her jumpers complete a new trick, what she enjoyed most was “how contagious the energy and passion I had for jump rope seemed to be.” Madison feels the same energy and passion for mathematics and looks forward to sharing that excitement with her students.
Madison graduated from Long Reach High School in Columbia, MD., and earned a BS from the University of South Carolina. An active volunteer, she tutors and plans public health activities for K-12th graders through her local community center and mentors students at a local school. She is involved with Relay For Life and the Multiple Sclerosis Walk. Madison’s love for jump rope has taken her to many unique places: she has taught the sport in Cyprus, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Canada.
Madison looks forward to collaborating “with the diverse and talented group of KSTF Fellows and staff to work towards similar goals” as she matures in her role as a mathematics teacher.
