Dusty Miller, seventh grade Social Studies teacher and coach at Camdenton Middle School, has been named Camdenton Teacher of the Week. As a history teacher, Miller encourages in-depth discussions among students about history and the impact past events have made on our lives today. He has also found that students gain insight into events of historical significance when they research those topics and report their findings back to the class.
Further, Miller has helped create and sponsor a Student Council in the middle school this year. His efforts and leadership have made it an active club. Miller and his students recently sponsored a fundraiser called, “Tries for Eyes”, a basketball free throw competition for students. With the proceeds that were made, an account was created that will be used to help children in the Camdenton School District who need glasses. Teacher of the Week is sponsored by Smith Law Firm and recognizes teachers for positive contributions made to the Camdenton students and district.
