About the Teacher
It is vitally important to me to meet students where they are and help them move forward in their learning. I want all students to come to school each day and feel safe, cared for, and know their value as scholars. I strongly believe in diversity, celebrate differences, and structure my lessons according to whole class and individual needs. Since we are a Catholic school, I also believe in inspiring children to be compassionate, loving, and faithful in all that they do, just the way God intends.
Who Am I?
A Brief Introduction
My name is Mrs. McMillan, and I am very eager to continue my journey at Queen of All Saints as the Third Grade teacher. I began my first year of teaching as a long-term substitute in first grade, and finished out the year in third. I graduated from the St. Mary's College credential and Masters program, and a current resident of Danville. Originally from Southern California, I grew up with sunshine and Catholic school education, and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. I am the oldest of three children, and my mom was also a Catholic school teacher. I absolutely love children, and am excited to have found my home teaching third grade here at Q.A.S.
