Mr. Miller's Home Page
My career began at Westwood Regional High School in February 2012. When I began working that winter, I had just briefly graduated from college. Throughout my career at the high school I have taught the following courses: Fabrication and Design I, Electricity and Electronics, STEM, 8th Grade Engineering and recently this year Fabrication and Design Two. These courses are extremely exciting and intriguing for me, for I have an extensive background in working with my hands in addition to the education I received at college. Some of the jobs I have held prior to teaching were: kitchen cabinet installer and finish carpentry work, and automotive repair. These jobs have helped extensively in the creation of new and exciting lessons to help keep the curriculum fun, interesting, and competitive with our continually changing world.

- Is there homework given in any of the classes?
No, there is generally never any homework given. The only type of homework given could be a practice take home work for a previously covered assignment in the class. Also students may be asked to bring in a material(s) or item(s) specific to an assignment given in the course. Lastly, it is the student's responsibility to complete any missed assignments outside of class time.
- How can my son or daughter do well in the course?
It is recommended, not required, at times to put in extra time on project work outside of class to help either keep up with the class pace, or successfully complete an assignment by the designated due date. I will make myself available as much as I can to help students with their projects.
