Larry L. Miller (Mr. Miller) grew up on a small wheat and cattle farm located in Sumner County, Kansas. He attended a one room school located west of Portland, Kansas for two years and then attended South Haven, Kansas Public Schools until his Junior year. He transfered to Wellington, Kansas Senior High School for his Junior and Senior years and graduated from WHS in 1967. Mr. Miller attended Southwestern College located in Winfield, Kansas where he graduated with a degree in education in 1971. Some of his favorite classes at Southwestern were the science and math education classes taught by Mr. Edward P. Foster. Mr. Miller traveled with Mr. Foster and a number of other S.C. students to Florida on an aerospace field trip in 1969. Since graduating from S.C. Mr. Miller has taken a variety of classes from several Kansas and Oklahoma colleges and universities.

Mr. Miller taught elementary classes at Caldwell Elementary School located in Caldwell, Kansas from 1971 till 1990. He accepted a science teaching position for grades 1-8 at Topeka Collegiate School in 1991. He later taught all middle school (grades 6-8) science classes at TCS until he resigned his position at Topeka Collegiate in 2001.

Mr. Miller is now employed by the Seaman School District (USD 345), and he is one of the 9th grade science instructors at Northern Hills Junior High School. Mr. Miller's true love for science dates back to his 9th grade science class in South Haven, Kansas. His instructor that year, Mr. Dick Dale, made science fun with lots of experiments, interesting stories, and demonstrations. Mr. Miller hopes to do the same for the students at Northern Hills.
