Principal's Message

Dear Richard E. Miller Students, Parents, and Families,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! My name is Amanda Wilber and I am honored to serve as the new principal at Richard E. Miller! To provide some background on myself, I served as the assistant principal at Washington Elementary School for the past 3 years, and prior to that, taught 1st and 2nd grade along with K-8 in a special education resource setting. I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI, moved to AZ about 10 years ago, and am fortunate to be able to travel back every summer to visit with family and friends. Overall, becoming an educational administrator has been hugely rewarding to me as I am able to combine both my passion and knowledge of education and pay it forward.

Our parents, families, and local community members are a huge contribution towards the positive culture and success of our school. We will continue to preserve that culture by maintaining volunteer programs, school events, and also an open door policy…we love it when you are here! Academically we will continue to professionally develop our skills, provide our students with top notch instruction, and make decisions that put our students first. Students and their success is our top priority!

Our Vision statement and philosophy originates from our school name yet requires every one of our community members to make it happen…R.E.M. Reaching Every Mind to be the best, expect the best, and get the best. As parents and community members, you make a huge impact on your student(s) education and future successes. We encourage you to take part in our REM community, and together we will reach the minds of our students to be the best, expect the best and get the best.

I look forward to meeting you all!

Your principal,

Amanda Wilber
