Meet Our Assistant Principal
Rick Miller

rmillerMy name is Rick Miller. I am excited about being the Assistant Principal at the new D.F. Huddle PreK-K Center. A safe, stable, and secure learning environment is essential for children to learn effectively. I will work tirelessly to provide that environment as well as quality instruction. I have been given the responsibility of being a positive role model for these students. It is an honor to be given the opportunity to mold the young student’s values, beliefs, and help build character for them to excel as successful problem-solvers. I invite the parents and community to share this responsibility so we, together as a team, will make the largest impact on the student’s future.
