Our Story

Hi, I'm Andrea Miller.  The Learning Garden was created by me - a mom and former elementary school teacher, math specialist and teacher trainer. While I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of everyday teaching, becoming a parent changed my perspective. It is my hope and dream to deliver a well rounded, research based program that allows me to continue my love of helping children grow while raising my own family.
