Sterling Miller, a longtime Danbury High School technology education teacher, has been named “Teacher of the Year 2018-19” by the Connecticut Technology Engineering Education Association (CTEEA/ITEEA).
“It is a remarkable honor for Connecticut to see one of our teachers walk across the stage at the ITEEA conference (March 2019) to receive a plaque in front of thousands of fellow education professionals from around the world,” wrote Gregory Kane, of CTEEA, in an award letter.
CTEEA is the professional organization for Connecticut technology education professionals and ITEEA is the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association. Each year CTEEA selects one middle school teacher and one high school teacher and a school program to honor.
“We are so fortunate to have teachers like Mr. Miller in our schools,” said Superintendent Dr. Sal Pascarella. “Mr. Miller wears many hats at DHS: he produces videos of school events and meetings, and offers students invaluable hands-on experience working in the field. He is very well-liked by colleagues and students alike with his approachable demeanor and outstanding professional attitude. He fosters the kind of growth that will help prepare students for both college and career after high school.”
Colleague Erik Savoyski said that Miller has many titles from Video Production Club Adviser to Hatters TV Producer, Graphic Arts Guru and Faculty Barbeque Team Member.
“In every instance, Sterling Miller is of service to both our department and our school. I am proud to call him a classroom colleague and esteemed friend,” Savoyski said.
