Principal's Welcome


Principal's Message

November 10, 2021 

Greeting Milford Students and Families, 

It is a privilege and honor to accept the position as the new principal of Milford Mill Academy effective today, November 10th.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue serving at a school filled with pride. We have hard-working students who are off to a great start since our return from remote learning due to COVID. Our staff is dedicated to our students and to supporting each other as we work to secure the continued and future success of Milford Mill. Our community is a hard working one steeped in tradition and high expectations. I am fortunate to be part of this school and to support all our students as they achieve academic success.  

As an educator, I am in my 25th year of service dedicated to educating young minds. I have been a high school Social Studies teacher, and team leader at both Woodlawn High School and Old Court Middle School. Additionally, I have been both a middle and high school assistant principal in the West Zone for 15 years serving at both Randallstown High School and Old Court Middle School (now Northwest Academy of Health Sciences). I transitioned to acting principal at Milford Mill Academy, July 2021 after serving five years as one of Milford’s assistant principals. My service throughout these years has allowed me the opportunity to work with richly diverse populations with unique needs.

Personally, I am the mother of two young adults who both are Milford Mill graduates. I was born and raised in Baltimore City, Maryland. I have lived in the Liberty Road/Northwest corridor for the past 22 years and take pride in serving the community in which I live. I can say with confidence that I will strive to support your children with the same things I have wanted for my children.

I assure you that I share in the school community’s commitment to caring for our students every day while supplying them with a safe and supportive learning environment. I want our students to leave Milford to be the best of our community. My primary focus will remain on academic achievement and fostering positive relationships with all stakeholders. I encourage and welcome community involvement dedicated to the advancement of all students. We will celebrate our student’s individual and collective success as continue throughout this school year. I am confident, as we serve together, that our students will continue to make great strides and become outstanding global citizens. 


With Miller Pride,
