Miller returns to Coshocton County to teach high school

| February 26, 2018

WARSAW – After graduating from The College of Wooster, Darcy Miller returned to her hometown of Warsaw to teach math at River View High School. Miller, a 2004 graduate of River View, applied for and received the Carlson Scholarship through The Coshocton Foundation, which is only offered once every four years. However, the scholarship requires that after the recipient completes his or her education, they return to Coshocton County for at least three years to work.

“I planned to return here anyway, so the three-year commitment wasn’t something that I feared,” said Miller. “I love it here. After my three-year commitment, I met my husband, Chad who is from here, and we now live in the house his parents built in Warsaw.”

The couple has two children, Gavin, 4, and Allie, 2.

Darcy will be finishing her 10th year at River View High School where she teaches geometry and CP algebra. She is also the math department head.

“I enjoy building a relationship with the students,” she said about teaching.

In addition to receiving her Bachelor of Arts from the College of Wooster in 2008, Darcy also has her masters in teacher leader from Muskingum University, which she received in 2012.

“I chose to stay in Coshocton County because it has always been home,” she said. “I wanted to be close to my family and the church I grew up attending. The positives of raising a family in Coshocton include the small local hometown feel and knowing people in the community.”

Darcy is a member of Roscoe United Methodist Church where she has just started a new Sunday School class for young adults, especially those with children. She is hoping that the young adult class will help build up the kids Sunday School class as well.

Darcy is also a 2017 graduate of Leadership Coshocton County where she said she made connections she wouldn’t have made otherwise.

“I loved Leadership Coshocton County,” she said. “I would recommend it to anybody. It allowed me to get out of this building and go see basically the jobs I’m preparing kids for. I don’t get to see what kids are doing after they leave this building. They say right now that we are preparing kids for jobs that don’t even exist yet, so seeing what they (industries) are doing now helps me relay to the kids why we have to do what we do.”

When asked what advice she has for other professionals, Darcy said, “Get involved and stay involved in the community. Give back to the community as much as you can. It doesn’t have to be monetary, it can be time. Set a good example.”
