Stuart Miller, was appointed Director of Education for Halton District School Board, effective September 30, 2015.
Miller’s teaching career has been predominantly Halton-based, with the exception of a year in Scotland, and a year teaching in Malawi, East Africa. His teaching responsibilities included Science, Biology and Mathematics, and he also coached hockey and soccer, coordinated science fairs, and initiated and organized social justice conferences for students. In 2009, Miller was appointed to the position of Superintendent of Education, and moved into the role of Associate Director in 2014.
Miller has been instrumental in creating the Welcome Centre for students new to Canada and implementing an expansion of the international student program within the Board. He is also credited with advancing the work of the Board’s Research and Accountability team, a department that plays a crucial role for schools by providing student data as a resource support for students.
“Positive and supportive relationships with students, staff and the community are essential for the success of our students, and those attributes are evident in Halton,” says Miller. “Education, teaching and learning are rapidly changing and moving into a new paradigm. It is the emphasis on relationships that will sustain and support the Board’s forward movement toward this paradigm. I am honoured and privileged to continue the successes of this Board and the communities it serves.”
