Dr. Linda Miller, Retired Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in teaching social studies.
Dr. Miller currently enjoys a well-deserved retirement after serving for many years as an educator. Prior to her retirement in 2007, she taught at the College of Southern Nevada. Prior to that position, she prepared future generations as a social studies teacher at Fairfax High School, Herndon Middle School, Mark Twain Middle School, Lake Braddock Secondary School, Pierson Junior High School and Turner Unified Schools. She fell in love with history from two of her own teachers, Mr. Toothaker and Mrs. Zimmerman. With their passion, and the support of her parents who took her to historical places growing up, Dr. Miller made it her life’s mission to bring that intense love of learning to her own students.
