Welcome to 8th Grade Pre-Ap US History & On-Level US History at Central Junior High!

In this course we will become Historians, Economists, Geographers, and students of Government, Citizenship, Culture and Innovation; specifically, we will be examining the history of the United States from the Pilgrims to Reconstruction after the Civil War. We will recognize different points of view with respect for self and others, transform into world ready decision makers, and build patriotism to inspire us! The knowlege of the students is assessed in a variety of ways throughout the year, including the state assessment (STAAR) on May 17th.

All students must bring a sturdy 2" or 3" 3-Ring Binder with 20 Dividers (yes, 20!) We will use these in Pre-AP and On-Level on the 2nd day of school.
1st Period: Map Pencils (at least 8 count)
2nd Period: Markers (at least 8 count, size doesn't matter)
3rd Period: glue sticks
4th Period: 1 box of tissue 
5th period: Hand Sanitizer

 I'm Mrs. Miller (or Coach Miller if old habits die hard!)--a LD Bell graduate and a Texas State University Bobcat, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree, and a Lamar University Cardinal where I earned my Master's Degree. I have been in the district six years, including 2 years as a 7th grade English teacher at CJH. When I'm not teaching or supporting girls' athletics, you can find me spending time with my husband (a former Trinity Trojan), my children, Oliver who is 6, Ellison who is 3, and Abbott who was born in March of 2017, and doing fun do-it-yourself projects around my house. Please don't hesitate to call or email me. I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
