About Miss Mills

Hi UP Family!


I am very excited about having the opportunity to be your child’s 3rd grade teacher!  The year will prove to be educational not only for your child but also for me as I strive to develop a learning environment best suited for your child’s special personality and needs.  Thank you for allowing me to spend this kind of time with your child! I am a native Texan and grew up in Highland Park. I graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Elementary Education and have a Master’s degree in Reading at the University of Texas at Tyler.  This will be my 9th year as a teacher and my 5th year at University Park!


Outside of school, I am a proud mom to a beautiful Golden Retriever, Lila.  She definitely keeps me busy, and your third graders will hear all about her throughout the school year!  In my spare time I love working out and spending time with my family and friends!


I absolutely love teaching and am SO excited for this year!  My passion at school is reading and writing, and I hope to share this love with your child!  See you in the classroom!
