MADISON – James Clemens High School has a new assistant principal, Allison Miller.

From 2000 to 2013, Miller taught math at Liberty Middle School, where she was selected as 2006 Teacher of the Year. Last school year, she transitioned to instructional partner at Discovery Middle School.

“James Clemens is a school focused on students and continuously works toward improving instruction,” Miller said. She believes James Clemens’ culture matches Jim Knight’s thoughts in his book, “Unmistakable Impact”: “Every student receives excellent instruction every day in every class.”

“I’m excited and proud to be a Jet,” Miller said.

Administrators and the Madison district have offered Miller many opportunities as an educational leader. This path continued with the Instructional Partners Network. “I learned what true partnership in education looks like and the impact it can have on student learning and achievement,” she said.

As assistant principal, her primary responsibility is instruction. Miller will collaborate with instructional partner Alyson Carpenter, especially for “Flight School,” the embedded professional development at James Clemens. As all assistant principals, Miller will help with discipline.

During her education, one teacher holds a special place in Miller’s heart who “was different because of connections with her students. She sincerely cared about each and every student that walked through her door.”

Miller’s teacher celebrated students’ successes, mourned their losses, supported them during struggles and cheered them to reach full potential. “She made everyone feel like they could accomplish anything.”

“She expected nothing less than our best and challenged us to take everything one step beyond our comfort zone,” Miller said. “Each day of her class was filled with a new adventure in learning, but, more importantly, each day was filled with a teacher who had a heart for students.”

Miller earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary mathematics at Auburn University and a master’s degree in educational leadership at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Her husband Scott works as a project manager at Adtran. Their daughters are Ansley, 7, a Columbia Elementary School second-grader, and Chloe, 4.
