My name is Linda Miller, and I am the School Counselor at Huntingdon Area Middle School. I attended Dickinson College, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Russian Language and Literature and Russian and Soviet Area Studies. It is with great honor that I taught Russian at Tussey Mountain Junior-Senior High School. Later, I obtained a Masters of Education in School Counseling at Frostburg State University in Maryland. I taught English as a Second Language at Grier School during summers and have been employed as a school counselor at Huntingdon Area Middle School since 2002.
As a mother of three children, I empathize with parents/guardians regarding both the joys and complexities of raising a family in the 21st century. I am thrilled to work within the Huntingdon Area School District and desire to build a strong relationship between school and home. Every child is of immense value and can attain success in the realms of social, academic, and career development. I embrace the Theory of Multiple Intelligences by Harvard professor Dr. Howard Gardner and believe that adolescents can excel in one or more areas encompassing Linguistic Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Intrapersonal Intelligence, and Naturalist Intelligence. During the middle school years, students will explore their talents and abilities so that they can pursue career aspirations and make appropriate course choices for high school.
