MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Greg Miller has been keeping kids physically fit at Bel Air Elementary School in New Brighton for 39 years and he’s become a favorite among the kids.
And that’s exactly why he does what he does: It’s for the kids. His co-workers say he has an obvious love for students and works extremely hard at his job. He greets the students every morning as they walk in the door, and he’s usually the last face they see when school gets dismissed.
Miller said his job is about building relationships. He says education in general doesn’t work unless a teacher has a good relationship with the kids. He says it’s the foundation of being a teacher.
Miller has 13 children, and several of them are adopted.
