Dr. Shawn Miller

The 2019-2020 school year will be my 25th year in education, and my fifth year as the principal of Cooper Junior High. I began my career as a junior high and high school Special Education teacher in 1995. In 2000, I moved to the Dallas area and continued my career in Special Education as a teacher and coordinator. I also served as an elementary behavior specialist and assistant principal prior to coming to Wylie in 2008. Since beginning my tenure in Wylie ISD, I have served as a Special Education coordinator, a high school assistant principal, and as the associate principal at Wylie East High School. I am from Mason, a small ranching/farming community in central Texas. As a young boy, my earliest memories are of my mother, grandmother, and teachers emphasizing the value of an education. Their words resonated with me, and I have never forgotten that life lesson.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication and a Master of Arts in Educational Administration from Texas State University in San Marcos. Later, I earned a Master of Science in Special Education from Texas A&M Commerce. In the spring of 2017, I earned my doctorate of philosophy in Educational Leadership. I am fortunate to come from a large family, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am looking forward to working with our students, parents, and staff at CJHS, and I am certain that this will be our best year yet.
