Kristi Miller graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and received a Master of Education degree from Converse College. However, Kristi’s best educational opportunity has been partnering with her husband, Chris, in parenting their two grown children. Mary Gwen and Sarah are her best teachers, and her greatest source of joy!
During her teaching career, Kristi has collaborated with teachers and administrators to create educational plans that were driven by both data and research on best practices, written elementary curriculum, and worked closely with families to design programs that engage students and ignite a love of learning. When her girls entered school at one of the few public Basic Schools in North Carolina, Kristi fell in love with the philosophy. She was a parent leader at that school for many years before her family moved on to a local charter school where she served on the Board of Directors. Professional development opportunities introduced Kristi to Corvian Community School in 2013. The pure joy and passion every staff member has for what they do convinced Kristi that she had to be a part of this growing school. Since coming to Corvian, she has been a Literary Facilitator, 3rd grade teacher, and 5th grade teacher.
Kristi lives in Highland Creek with her husband, Chris. Mary Gwen and Sarah live nearby and often visit around dinner time. She is a huge Panthers fan and loves nothing more than being at the stadium on a crisp autumn afternoon to watch her Panthers win. Kristi also enjoys sewing and quilting, traveling with her family, and serving in her church.
