Ginny Miller – Interactive Content Coordinator
Ginny lives in Northeast Tennessee in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Her husband, Joel, is a student pastor at a local church where he has served for the past eight years. They have two sons who are currently in ninth and tenth grades. Ginny has a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and worked as an ESL teacher, adult developmental studies teacher, and spent one year teaching English at a private school. She also has extensive administrative experience in medical offices and as a bookkeeping assistant. Ginny has been a stay-at-home mom since having their first son. It was a natural transition to start homeschooling her two boys in PreK and Kindergarten even though she never planned to homeschool. God had other plans and eleven years later, the boys are still homeschooled as well as attending a hybrid school for several classes. While homeschooling, Ginny worked for six years as the director of a local homeschool community before joining The Old Schoolhouse in August 2020. Ginny started out the first few months in the sales department before transitioning to Schoolhouse Teachers’ interactive content team. Ginny worked for several months as an interactive content developer before adding front-end leader as part of her job. In December 2021, Ginny accepted the position of Interactive Content Coordinator. While Ginny coordinates the efforts and leads the interactive content team, she still loves and continues to develop interactive content for SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
