Millie was born in Honolulu, Hawaii but spent most of her youth in Valdez, Alaska, fishing, boating, and camping. While studying theatre at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, she spent every summer as Program Director for the farthest northern Girl Scout camp in America. Having Montessori teaching certifications for preschool and elementary she has taught general education and after school art classes in the private sector since 2013. She is currently working on obtaining her national teaching certification with a dual licensure in Elementary Education and Special Education.
Millie comes from a family of artists, who use natural and renewable resources in their work. Millie’s teaching style is to allow children to explore new techniques, and follow their own interests. She teaches art history, art theory, crafts, and fine arts. For Millie, art is about process not just product.
When Millie is not teaching, she enjoys traveling to the woods, beach, or mountains with her husband and two young children. Her personal hobbies include clay projects, furniture painting, and cooking. She is passionate about social justice, inclusion, and honoring the many cultures shared by our community.
