Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laura Miller
I am so very excited to be at Mathews Elementary for a second year as your school nurse!
A little bit about me:
I graduated from Baylor University Nursing School and have been a pediatric nurse at Children's Medical Center in Dallas for over 30 years, mostly pediatric Intensive care and oncology. I have thoroughly loved my career at Children’s but I am thrilled to return to Mathews this year. I have discovered how much I love being a school nurse!
My heart and home have been full with 9 children, 4 by birth and 5 by adoption, 4 of which have special medical needs.
In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, jogging, hiking, bike riding and meeting friends (old and new) at Starbucks for coffee! My husband and I are certified marriage/life coaches with a special emphasis on families who have been affected by children with special needs.
I look forward to another school year, where I can build and deepen the relationships with the students here. As a young teen, I felt “ called ” to give my life for the well-being of children, so it is rewarding to me to see how this has unfolded in my life!
My desire as a Nurse at Mathews: For every student to maximize their God-given potential in education by optimizing their physical, mental and emotional health and well-being; to provide health education in a safe and nurturing environment in which each and every student can thrive in.
