Jacquie Miller- 48 Months to 60 Months

My name is Jacquelyn “Jacquie” Marie Miller! I was born in 1987. I grew up east of Cincinnati in a small town called Williamsburg. I was the captain of our volleyball team and cheerleading squad during my senior year. The school district was so small, as it continues today, that my final graduating class was only a class of 40!

I am married to my husband Andrew, we have two children Oliver (2016) and Joseph (2019), and our fur baby Geoffrey. Growing up my mother was an art teacher at a school located in Clermont County which I think blossomed my love for art of all sorts.   My father was the Vice President of Facilities at St. Elizabeth Hospital. They are the best family that anyone could ask for! Andrew is a witty, handsome, driven, empathetic, intelligent tax accountant for a nationwide staffing company headquartered in downtown Cincinnati.

The reason I chose to work in childcare is the fact that children bring a smile to my face; not to mention I have a lot of energy to share! The job of educating 4 year old’s makes me feel like Superwoman! A day spent at All About Kids is never ordinary. This job is challenging and rewarding at the same time. I would have to say that the best part of my day is arriving at work and receiving the greeting of a lifetime – all of my “kids” screaming “HEY” or “HI” and you honestly cannot beat that!  You can find me in Room 8!

Thanks,
Miss Jacquie

Pre-AAK life I worked at another center for 3 years teaching Kindergarten Readiness and also Preschool.  I loved all aspects of teaching and I loved that I also learned along the way,

I began working at All About kids in March of 2019.  I’m also currently pursuring my CDA and I am very excited to see what God’s plan is for me here.
