Meet the Office Staff
Mrs. Stover is a caring, nice, friendly person that has had experience working as a secretary and that’s why we hired her here at Miller. As a kid she wanted to have fame, glory and be a pop star like Britney Spears. When she was in middle and high school she dreamed of being a veterinarian. Mrs. Jelovich went to college for five years at Grays Harbor Community College. In her opinion, the best part of her job is the kids and getting to know them, and she hasn't had the worst part of being on the Miller staff. Yet. Growing up as a kid she was strongly inspired by her parents and still is, they are a big part in her life.
Mr. Douglass is a dependable worker and likes kids and that's why we hired him at our school. Before he worked as a behavior specialist at Miller he was a full time truck driver. He drove trucks for 18 years working with Dahlstrom Inc. traveling through Washington and Oregon. He went to college at Grays Harbor Community College and Clover Park Technical College, attending college for a total of three years. In his opinion the best part of this job is the kids and being able to help them work through problems, the worst part is listening and watching the kids make mistakes that could get them in serious trouble. He doesn't have a role model, but he definitely looks up to former principals and tries to improve their accomplishments. He is very proud of the work he and his co-workers have accomplished during the time they have worked together. When he was younger his dream was to be a police officer, but raising his own children and interacting with them inspired him to work at a school and we are lucky enough to have him working at ours.
Mrs. Struthers is a wonderful, kind, positive, energetic person and she loves kids, which, is why she thinks we hired her to work with our staff at Miller. Mrs. Struthers wanted to be a secretary or a veterinarian before she worked at Miller. She achieved her goal of becoming a secretary and she went through one year of college to achieve that goal. She attended Grays Harbor schools her whole life. However, she wanted to go back to school because she wanted to have a better education. She says the best part of her job is being around children and helping them. The worst part is when kids aren’t around, for example during the summer while all the kids are on break and she comes in and it’s quiet and boring. She gets inspired and looks up to her co-workers, she learns from all of them. She is very happy with what Miller staff and students have achieved over the years she has been here and says there is still more to achieve in the future. She joined or staff because she loved volunteering at her children’s school and helping in general. She attended Hoquiam schools as a child herself.
Ms. McNeal thinks we hired her because she likes working here at Miller Junior High and wants to make Miller the best it can be. Growing up, Ms. McNeal wanted to become a writer and she had to attend college for 2 or more years to become the principal’s secretary. The best part of her job is getting to know the students here at Miller Junior High and the worst part of her job is probably being cooped up all day in the back of the office. Growing up, her role model was her neighbor because her neighbor was always caring and nice and she wanted to be just like her. She also liked someone who could write a story which is probably why she studied writing at the University of Washington. Before becoming the principal’s secretary she volunteered at other schools. Ms. McNeal did attend Miller Junior High and so did her children.
