Carolyn Carter Miller, EdD, served 19 years as principal of Lemon Road Elementary School in Fairfax County, Virginia. Under her leadership, the school transformed from a failing organization to a PLC where teachers collaborated to provide learning environments where all children succeeded. Lemon Road, the smallest school in Fairfax County Public Schools, became a model for implementing multiage instruction, looping, and vertical teaming and for developing power standards. Dr. Carter Miller began her career as a first-grade classroom teacher more than 30 years ago. As an administrator for more than 20 years, she devoted her passion and energy to expanding teacher capacity.
Dr. Carter Miller has also been a central office resource teacher for elementary language arts educators and a consulting teacher for the Teacher Performance Evaluation Program. Since her retirement, she has established a relationship with an elementary school just beginning its PLC journey.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education at Norfolk State University, a master’s degree in administration and supervision from George Mason University, and a doctorate in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University.
