Southridge Elementary’s Alexis Miller Named Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce/Huffines Auto Dealership February Teacher of the Month
March 27, 2019 — Alexis Miller of Southridge Elementary has been selected as the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce/Huffines Auto Dealership-Lewisville February Teacher of the Month — the sixth honoree of the 2018-2019 school year.
Miller, a Lewisville High School alumna, is described as a passionate educator who works to build strong relationships with students through restorative practice circles. Not only does she seek out engaging learning opportunities for her students, but Miller seeks to make a difference in their lives as well. Miller’s “Rise Up” girls mentoring group has resulted in positive self-awareness and enhanced decision-making skills for the students involved. She also finds time to participate in leadership at the campus and district level. Southridge Principal Wyvona Ulman says she is proud Miller is a member of the Southridge Elementary team.
“Receiving this honor is special to me,” Miller said. “To be recognized for what I have learned to be ‘freedom work’ is humbling. As a proud graduate of Lewisville Independent School District, I have had firsthand exposure to receiving an education of rigor, relevance, and full of diverse relationships. I strongly believe that my familiarity with the community, in which LISD serves, has provided me with the unique opportunity to pay it forward. For that, I am grateful. Thank you, Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce!”
Miller accepted the award March 26 at the Chamber’s partnership luncheon held at Bridlewood Golf Club. Huffines Auto Dealership-Lewisville Business Relations Director Fred Whitfield and Chamber Board Chair-Elect Ann Pape made the presentation. Miller was joined at the luncheon by her family as well as Southridge Principal Wyvona Ulman.
