"So it is with children who learn to read fluently and well: They begin to take flight into whole new worlds as effortlessly as young birds take to the sky."

Welcome to fourth grade at Dr. Joyanne D. Miller School!  This is my 17th year of teaching English Language Arts in the Egg Harbor Township school district, and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you for the 2021/2022 school year.  Last year was very different, but this year we're back to learning in our classrooms.  We have been working diligently setting up rooms and creating a warm and friendly atmosphere to help us all transition back into a more traditional school environment.  It's going to be an exciting year full of fun and engaging activities.  


If parents need to contact me, please email me at [email protected], or call my Google Voice number at (609) 246-0618, and leave a message.  When emailing or calling, please leave your full name, your child's full name, and a detailed message with you questions or concerns.  You may also contact me through your child's Google classroom.  I will respond within 24 hours, or if it is a weekend or holiday, on the next business day.      


We will continue using Google classroom to communicate important information, assignments, newsletters, and upcoming activities.  Please check your child's Google classroom daily, or at the very least on a weekly basis, for any updates.  The invitation codes for students to join are below.
